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.
The Gettysburg Foundation and Gettysburg National Military Park invite Adams County residents to a Community Appreciation Day on November 11. On four designated Community Appreciation Days a year, including Veterans Day, Adams County residents enjoy free admission to the Cyclorama, Film and Museum Experience at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center and at the David Wills House. Since this fourth appreciation day of the year falls on Veterans Day, military veterans will be admitted free of charge (active duty military receive free admission year round.) In conjunction with Community Appreciation Day, the Rupp House History Center will be open with special hours (admission is free/tickets are not required).
