Don’t Travel to West Virginia, Please

The West Virginia State Tourism Board has taken an interesting approach to luring tourists to the Mountain State — they’re telling them not to visit.

“Whatever you do, don’t come to West Virginia,” reads the ad which appeared in the latest issue of Oprah’s O magazine. But it doesn’t stop there. “Why would you even want to when there are beaches in the Carolinas and mega-theme parks in Florida? And nothing says family fun like a 10-hour drive with screaming kids, miles after mile of desolate highway, and little to break the monotony besides the occasional rest area or fast food joint.”

Can anyone scan the ad and send it over? I don’t subscribe to O. Really.
