Hurting Luray’s tourism

Visitors Center

Hiding Luray’s Welcome Center in the basement of a retail business that has very few parking spaces hardly reflects the welcoming nature of Page County residents!  Please keep the Visitor’s Center at the historic train station where it not only is already a tourist attraction, but reflects its citizenry.

  1. Nice letter. They’re just moving it to a basement in the flood plain to help out the building owner. One wonders if the rent will be more than $250/mo plus flood insurance.

  2. That’s why page county doesn’t have much anymore
    They want to hide the great things like the visitor center but keep other things out and about that doesn’t mount to a hill if beans.
    Pathetic I say.
    I know that Luray has turned into nothing but an area but for tourist what about all the people who live in Luray and surrounding areas.

  3. The basement is a strategic move. After a spell of simulated hardship, they wil start begging, again, for a new visitor center out on the bypass. But the basement caper will fail by showing we can survive without a visitor center.
    Why do we even need a visitor center? Are the visitors a bunch of dumbells that can’t get along on their own?
