The Toronto Star, one of three major metro daily newspapers in the Canadian city, published a story this past weekend highlighting not only an experience that sometimes reaches beyond the destination's rich history, but one that focused on the community's arts and culinary scene.
Destination Gettysburg hosted freelance writer Jennifer Allford in June after meeting the travel editor of the Toronto Star at a media show in New York earlier in the year. The communications team at Destination Gettysburg collaborated with the writer in the months leading up to her visit and made arrangements for her two-day stay in Adams County.
"Between the small 'Civil War Building' plaques lining buildings along Chambersburg Street, there is evidence of another onslaught this day - drawings on paper are affixed to the brick, free for the taking, in a semi-regular 'art attack' in which a local artist gives away a stock pile of her work," the article began. "You notice Nanette Hatzes's art - colourful abstracts, thoughtful faces and the occasional mermaid - when you look away from signage about yet another building that was used as a hospital during the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863. After the three-day
conflict, more than 50,000 men were dead, injured or missing. But that bloody history doesn't mean people here can't celebrate life."
The Toronto Star has a print circulation of 361,000 and an online audience of 9.3 million unique monthly visitors.
