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.
This event is a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Gettysburg and to experience the three-day battle from the perspective of the Irish Brigade. Guests are invited to meet General Hancock at Auto Tour Stop #9 at 1pm for a brief walk in the Wheatfield where the General, portrayed by Randy Feranec who is a member of Confederation of Union Generals, will describe the actions of the Irish troops during that critical period of the battle.
The evening event features a talk on the Irish at Gettysburg by General Hancock, Brig. Gen. Hunt and Father Corby. We will have dinner at 6:30pm in the Abigail Adams ballroom followed by the history presentation.
Tickets for the complete tour can be purchased directly from any one of the member inns with the Inns of the Gettysburg Area. The cost for the event is $50 per adult, $40 per child under the age of 9. Special weekend packages that include the Irish in Gettysburg tickets are also available.
