Virginia is a top destination for history and heritage tourism, thanks to the 2019 Commemoration.
Frommer’s, a travel publication, announced that Virginia is included in its list of Best Places to Go in 2019 on Wednesday. The publication’s unranked list also includes destinations like Bulgaria, Memphis, Tenn. and Nagasaki, Japan.
The 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution put Virginia on the list because the state-wide, year-long event promises to be a deep dive into the complicated and under-told origins of the United States told through engaging exhibitions and programs, Pauline Frommer, Frommer’s editorial director, said in a 2019 Commemoration news release.
“It’s an opportunity for Americans to reflect upon what it means to be a U.S. citizen, and do so in a highly authentic and engaging fashion,” Frommer said.
