Virginia to introduce The LINCOLN Movie Trail

The worlds of movie magic and travel are set to come together in Virginia with the launch of The LINCOLN Movie Trail. LINCOLN recently opened and was filmed entirely in Virginia at sites in Richmond and Petersburg. The state tourism office has created a self-guided trail and interactive web site to help movie and history buffs visit actual film locations that are open for visitors, as well as restaurants, bars and shops that were visited by the stars. The trail experience includes special LINCOLN tours by Segway and guided walking tours. Notable film locations that are open for visitors include the Virginia State Capitol, historic downtown Petersburg and the Empire Theater. Each participating trail site is marked with an iconic “LINCOLN was Here”graphic, with more information online about each site’s connection to the movie. An interactive trail map as well as LINCOLN travel packages, special offers and unique guided tours are on http://www.Virginia.org/LINCOLN .
