Montgomery County tourist attractions have seen a drop in visitors over the last year due to COVID-19-related closures and social distancing restrictions limiting the number of people that can be present on site, writes Sharon Oliver for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Valley Forge National Historical Park saw a drop in visits of 10.93 percent in 2020 compared to 2019. The attraction welcomed 2,259,944 visitors two years ago, compared to 2,012,832 last year.

However, this is not one of the lowest drops in tourist attraction visits in the Philadelphia region. For example, Longwood Gardens in neighboring Chester County saw a drop of 44.89 percent over the same period.
