Record #:
Tom Harrison, director of the Washington County Travel and Tourism Authority, hopes to create a driving route along the Roanoke River for tourists to take on their way to the Outer Banks. The route, called Cut the Corner, is an effort to bring more tourists to the northeastern part of North Carolina, while saving travelers 27 miles on their drive to the beach. Stops along this route include Weldon, Halifax, Sylvan Heights Bird Park, and Plymouth.
