TripAdvisor has placed Gettysburg, Pa., at the top of the website’s list, Historical Family Vacation Spots You can Afford.

The world’s largest travel website, TripAdvisor identified nine of America’s most historically prominent destination spots and pulled their vacation rental review scores. They also calculated average prices and how that compares to hotels.

“Embrace the charm and historical impact of this Pennsylvania town,” the website wrote. “Beyond the battlefield lies Adams County, a countryside filled with wineries, farms, outdoor recreational activities and beautiful terrain.”

Other destinations included Charlestown, S.C.; Philadelphia; San Antonio, Texas; and Washington, D.C. Gettysburg also was recently named the second most popular destination in the Northeast United States by FamilyFun Magazine.

“Historical family vacations are a great way to blend education and pastime with the thrill of experiencing a new place,” continued the website. “With more alternative accommodations available today than ever before, you don’t need to break the bank on a five-star hotel in America’s most charming colonial cities.”

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
