NORFOLK (AP) -- Virginia's newest tourism campaign is focused on getting travelers in their cars for "Old School" road trips.
 
State officials launched the new campaign Thursday in Norfolk at Doumar's Barbecue and Cones, which claims to be the inventor of the ice cream cone. Doumar's is one of the featured destinations in a series of road-trip ideas focused on old-fashioned diners and classic drive-ins.
 
The web-based campaign also provides itineraries for road trips focused on wineries and breweries, music venues and roadside attractions throughout the state.
 
The Virginia Tourism Corporation's campaign can be viewed at www.virginia.org/OldSchool.
