Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
From historic taverns to ethnic cuisine, farm-to-table dining to unique edibles, the tastes of Gettysburg are sure to please every palate.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Most weekends, April through November, the Gettysburg Heritage Center hosts Living History Camps. The camps are designed for visitors to explore and gain a better understanding of what life was like for the soldiers during the war. Periodically throughout the day, demonstrations take place. A different group sets up each weekend, allowing for both Union and Confederate camps. Demonstrations vary from weekend to weekend.
The camps and demonstrations are free and open to the public. Camp opens at 9 am, and stays open until 5 pm, with extended summer hours until 7 pm.
