In Adams County, we know that tourism is big business, bringing in more than $670 million in visitor spending, generating $130 million in tax revenue and supporting more than 7,500 jobs.
Destination Gettysburg is celebrating National Travel & Tourism Week with a variety of events and programs to increase awareness among the community, elected officials and the thousands of workers in the industry.
In celebration of National Travel & Tourism Week, Destination Gettysburg has a variety of programs and events planned for the week, including:
