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.
Plan to come to the Back from the Dead Cemetery Walk, an engaging and inspiring dramatization in which martyrs, saints and others “come to life”, telling their stories of faith, hope and charity. It takes place in St. Joseph’s Cemetery at The National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, which holds this event in partnership with Mount Saint Mary’s Campus Ministry Office. Recommended for ages 14 and older; groups are welcome. Reservations are appreciated for groups of 10 or more.
The event is held rain or shine; please dress for an evening outdoors. The first walk begins at 6:30pm, with subsequent walks following every 15 min. The last walk begins at 8:45pm.
