With thousands of youth soccer players and families set to converge on the metro region this weekend for the start of the 2016 Jefferson Cup, Henrico County has rolled out an updated tourism website and a new app for mobile devices to help visitors plan where to sleep, eat, shop and spend their time during their stay in the county.
