For written text on signboards, what is a phrase corresponding to "Welcome to Central City" that is used when leaving? Is there a phrase of the form "[insert word] from Central City"?

I thought of using "Bon voyage", which has the exact meaning that I want. However, I need a phrase that contains the name of the location. I then thought about using "You are leaving Central City", but this lacks the well-wishing and fanfare that "Welcome to Central City" contains. At the end, I came up with "Bon voyage. You are leaving Central City". Is there a better phrase?

    Maybe something along the lines of "Thanks for visiting Central City. Come back soon."

Usually I think of the phrase corresponding to “Welcome to -x-” as “Thank you for -related verb- -x-”

“Thank you for visiting Central City.” “Thank you for shopping at shoppingcenter.” “Thank you for flying (on) air planecompany.”

    You see "Thank you for visiting Central City" or sometimes "You are now leaving Central City" road signs.

Goodbye from Central City?

The Scottish side of the border with England has "Haste Ye Back"
