FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — For the fifth consecutive year, Spotsylvania County claimed victory today in the Virginia Tourism Board’s (VTB) annual “Best Place to Drive Past” contest.
The winner was revealed by Amanda Conrad, a representative from the VTB, on the group’s Facebook page. “Spotsylvania is the prime example of a place with absolutely nothing interesting going for it and should therefore be avoided,” Conrad described. “The county features the most mundane scenery, never-ending farmland, and a couple of massive gas stations that no one would even consider for a fuel stop. A recent survey also showed that in the past year only three drivers stopped in Spotsylvania willfully.”
She did note, however, that nearly every county along the I-95 and I-85 corridors through Southern Virginia collectively came in a close second.
