Civil War Sesquicentennial: History Comes Alive at America’s B&Bs

Celebrate the 150 anniversary of the American Civil War at historic inns at the major sites.

You’ll get a close-up view of the conflict through the lens of its heroes. Stay at a luxury B&B that served as a Confederate hospital during the Battle of Gettysburg. See the cannon garrisons at Fort Sumter and then return for tea at an antebellum inn where heads of state once met. Get pampered during an overnight stay at a former Virginia plantation where Civil War skirmishes took place.

Spring is my favorite season to travel for many reasons. There’s a certain glimmer to spring travel. The temperatures are rising, and the flowers are blooming, providing a fresh head start on the travel season before summer tourism kicks into high gear.
