If you live in an apartment in Lynchburg, VA there is a new easy way to see what is hot and happening around the city. It's a website called LynchVegas.com. It showcases anything and everything unique to see and do around Lynchburg.
It started a few months ago, and it already has a huge following.
It began as a way to show college students that Lynchburg can be fun, as much fun as Las Vegas. Now, the site attracts hundreds of different people, and showcases all of the best the hill city has to offer.
Johns, a Liberty grad, and Lynchburg lover, hit the World Wide Web, to share with nay sayers his favorite spots in the hill city.
"And we just started posting all the cool stuff that we enjoyed ourselves - White Hart, different restaurants and businesses," he said.
What started with a few favorites has now snowballed into more than 80 restaurants, clothing and coffee shops. It's expanded, now featuring events, artists, and musicians.
"It's brought us more revenue, more business, and more customers," said Andrew Schools, the owner of The White Hart Café.
The White Hart Cafe was the website's first feature.
"Anything that's going to draw more awareness to cool, little, local businesses like that, definitely a good thing," said another.
