By Stefanie Jackson – The Cape Charles LOVE sign will be featured on the cover of the 2020 Virginia Travel Guide, the  Virginia Tourism Corporation and Cape Charles Main Street announced in a recent press release.

“The Virginia Travel Guide is the perfect way to learn about our vibrant communities, attractions, and people, through the experiences of those who know Virginia best,” said President and CEO Rita McClenny, of the Virginia Tourism Corporation.

The LOVE sign is found at the entrance to the Cape Charles public beach, on the corner of Mason Avenue and Bay Avenue.

The items that come together to form the letters in the word “love” remind visitors of the types of activities they might enjoy on a vacation in Cape Charles, such as kayaking and fishing.

“This unique rendition of the LOVE sign has become an integral part of our community and a sightseeing destination for visitors in search of a unique photo that captures the spirit of our community.

“Our LOVE sign has been the social media star in countless family beach vacation shots, bridal party shots, candid selfies, etc,” read a statement from Cape Charles Main Street.

The program’s director, Karen Zamorski, said, “We are so fortunate to have such an incredible work of art as a part of the Cape Charles landscape.

“I can’t tell you how excited we are that our LOVE sign was chosen for the cover of the guide and look forward to sharing it with new and returning visitors to our charming town this year.”

The Cape Charles LOVE sign is now one of more than 200 LOVEworks that can be found across the commonwealth, and the 2020 Virginia Travel Guide features the story of a mother and daughter who have teamed up to visit each one.

The Virginia Travel Guide is an annual compilation of personal travel recommendations and stories from people who call Virginia home, and it covers every region in the state.

The guide is free and available at all Virginia welcome centers. It can also be obtained by calling 1-800-VISITVA (1-800-847-4882) or visiting virginia.org/travelguide
