Celebrating 50 Summers of Love

If you're a longtime Virginia resident, you may measure time by how many cars you've owned with "Virginia is for Lovers" bumper stickers. The iconic ad campaign dates to 1969 when Richmond's Martin and Woltz Inc. agency created it for what is now Virginia Tourism Corp. The campaign is recognized as one of the most successful in the last half-century.

Visit Loudoun marks the 50th anniversary with its own “Summer of Love” tour of the county’s hottest summertime events in a 1970 VW bus used by Quentin Tarantino in the movie Jackie Brown.
