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.
To celebrate Elizabeth Ann Seton's birthday and her legacy of education, the Shrine is having a Blessing of the Backpacks for students of every age. It takes place during our usual 1:30 Mass. All are welcome to join us. If you don't use a backpack, please bring whatever you might use in your studies- a book bag, basket,tablet or anything else. Our priest will provide a blessing for an enriching year of learning and growth. After Mass, we'll celebrate Elizabeth Ann Seton's birthday with birthday cake and fun activities for kids of all ages.
