In a post-COVID world, the Deep Creek Lake area in Maryland stands out as a top destination of choice for groups of all kinds. Outdoor activities abound, not to mention a hearty variety of historic and cultural offerings sure to teach everyone who visits something new.
As the pandemic continues, signs of light are beginning to emerge on the horizon. Such is the case in New York City, where NYC & Company—New York City's official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau—is predicting 36.4 million visitors will visit in 2021, a sharp contrast to the only 22.3 million visitors welcomed in 2020.
By day and by night, Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is expanding its offerings to visitors this spring. Starting May 7, the destination will add three new, original artist installations to its growing collection of site-specific art, on view during all public hours. In addition, that evening kicks off Night Tours: Summer Twilight, a summer-long, after-hours event with additional, exclusive programming.
Outdoor offerings are all the rage these days, and sculpture parks are no exception! Next time your groups are looking to admire some thought-provoking art while basking in the sunshine, keep these sculpture parks around the U.S. top of mind.
