Under $100 / North America

Bedford is a historic, rural delight in South Central Pennsylvania.


Start your exploration with breakfast at The Crystal Room at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort. You don’t need to stay at this luxury property to enjoy its top-tier dining and The Crystal Room provides delicious brunch fare, including a breakfast buffet and omelet station daily, featuring locally grown produce and other ingredients. Breakfast options start at $15.


Bedford’s intrigue lies primarily in its history. Because of this, many of the attractions you find throughout the small town focus on its extensive past. Pay a visit to the Fort Bedford Museum, which houses more than 4,000 artifacts and commemorates the original Fort Bedford construction in 1758. The museum reopens this May following extensive renovations.


Another Bedford museum pays homage to one specific type of artifact. The National Museum of the American Coverlet is the first independent, year-round institution devoted to historic, American woven coverlets. The museum is located in the 1859 Bedford Common School building and showcases more than 50 coverlets at a time, with special events and classes. Admission is $10.


Grab lunch at the historic Golden Eagle Inn. Built in 1796, the restaurant offers a lunch menu of small plates, salads and soups, such as a roasted beet Caesar salad with baby kale and heirloom tomatoes ($9) and a local cheese board with strawberry compote and pickled vegetables ($14).


If you’re in town on a Friday afternoon, stop by the Bedford County Visitors Bureau to catch a free historic walking tour. The tour includes several spots, such as the 1828 courthouse and the Espy House, where President George Washington stayed during the Whiskey Rebellion.


Extend your exploration of Bedford’s history further with a visit to Old Bedford Village for military and civilian re-enactments, colonial crafts and exhibits. There are more than three dozen structures on the property, making up an expansive living history display.


The historic Jean Bonnet Tavern serves dinner to locals and travelers alike in the late 1700s structure. The history books say the tavern was a meeting place for farmers during the Whiskey Rebellion and President Washington camped on site. The dinner menu ranges from sandwiches to steaks, alongside regional desserts. You can easily enjoy dinner on a budget for less tha
