Lady Antebellum featured on GA travel guide

Georgia's own Lady Antebellum is featured on the cover of the state's 2012 annual Georgia Travel Guide.

This full-color, magazine-size guide features the band photographed at Evans Town Center Park in Columbia County.

The guide provides visitors with information on Georgia's tourism assets including trip ideas, attractions, accommodations, events and more.

750,000 guides are distributed through the state's 11 Visitor Information Centers, www.ExploreGeorgia.org, travel and trade shows and 1-800-VISIT GA.

The guide also features a Q&A with the band about their favorite spots in Georgia.

Gov. Nathan Deal joined Georgia's tourism and hospitality industry Tuesday for the annual Tourism & Hospitality Day at the state Capitol to highlight the important role tourism plays in Georgia's economy.

Representatives from the tourism industry presented Deal with a check representing $1.185 billion in state tax revenue generated from tourism-related expenditures in 2010.

"The tourism industry is a huge economic engine for the state of Georgia," said Deal. "The more than 391,000 Georgians employed by the industry are an integral part of Georgia's economy."
