Strong tourism in the community, despite the pandemic | Columns


The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t exactly a problem of the past as we all hoped now, but I’m proud to say that at the end of 2021, the tourism industry here in Adams County has generated the momentum it needs to build a strong future for tourism in our community.

In 2021, travel to Gettysburg and the surrounding countryside almost rebounded to pre-COVID levels, despite lingering concerns about the pandemic – including the COVID variants that occurred during the year. Our accommodation tax report – which is a strong indicator of footfall, especially among overnight visitors – stands at less than 95% of the number of accommodations in 2019 and is poised to double levels from 2020.
