"I thought the PlaceVR virtual tour was very good, and this technology and service will keep getting better.  Golden Shovel is an early adopter in this economic development service, and good thing, too.  The virtual tour of the APEX Region was great. I felt like I was visiting and got a great introduction to the community and it's local assets."
