Abstract

This research note examines how international borders have created a unique heritage context within which a number of hotels and restaurants have flourished largely because of their border locations. A spatial typology is presented of border-located lodging and food services to include establishments that lie directly on borderlines, as well as those that are located near international boundaries and whose heritage appeal is affected by their “bisected” or otherwise border-located heritagescapes. Empirical examples are presented from North America and Europe to illustrate the types of borderland establishments that appeal to visitors because of their international border heritage.
