Economic Recovery How you can help!
How can you help Surry County
businesses and tourism attractions recover from COVID-19?
Glad you asked!
There are two promotional campaigns that you can participate
in to bring positive attention to Surry, its businesses,
and tourism assets. Your contributions could have a direct
effect on the economic recovery of our community!
Our Secrets - Resident Sentiment Campaign
Studies show that the number one reason people choose to
travel is to spend time with friends and family. The need
is going to be even greater following the lifting of COVID-19
restrictions, and Surry County needs to be positioned to
take advantage of newly emerging travel trends.
If you love Surry County like we do, we would appreciate
your input. Consumers in general tend to place a higher
degree of trust in personal recommendations and who
better to tell them all the great things that they can experience
with their family and friends in Surry than our own residents!
Take time today to open the Participation
Guidelines & Entry Form and answer eight simple
questions, submit a photograph and let our staff
do the rest! Your recommendations may be used on our tourism
website and social media platforms to help promote visitation
to the County in the Fall of 2020; thereby, increasing visitor
spending which will give our local economy the boost it
