Adams County, Pa., is on track to generate more than $50 million in hotel revenue this year, nearing the all-time high set in 2013 - the year that Gettysburg commemorated the 150th Anniversary of the Battle.
So far, through June, hotel sales - rentals by visitors staying in hotels/motels, bed and breakfasts, guest houses and campground cabins/cottages in Adams County - neared $23 million, almost $1 million higher than those same months in 2016, and $1.75 million higher than 2013.
"Destination Gettysburg has worked hard to extend visitors' stays by convincing travelers that they need more than a day, often more than two days, to fully experience Adams County," said Norris Flowers, President of Destination Gettysburg. "These numbers are proof that our marketing is working."
Hotel revenue is key to generating not only income for owners of accommodation properties, but overnight stays bring approximately $675,000 in lodging taxes to county and local governments annually, in addition to supporting thousands of jobs throughout Adams County.
