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 notes of Taps will fill the air in Gettysburg every evening this summer as the famous 24-note call is sounded in honor of those who have served our nation. The Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania, in partnership with Gettysburg National Military Park and Taps For Veterans, invite the public to attend One Hundred Nights of Taps between Memorial Day and Labor Day at the Soldiers’ National Monument in the Gettysburg National Cemetery.
Performers are being assembled to sound the iconic bugle call each evening at 7 pm. Among the buglers signed up to perform are military veterans, Civil War re-enactor buglers, community band members, high school and college students, and music teachers.
The public is cordially invited to attend any evening performance and recommended parking is at the Gettysburg National Cemetery Lot on Taneytown Road. For more information and to sign up to perform on an evening please visit: www.tapsbugler.com/100-nights-of-taps/ or www.lincolnfellowship.wildapricot.org
