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.
Go beyond the battlefield and discover the Quaker Valley, just 8 miles north of Gettysburg. This is where the fruit growing industry started and where early Quaker settlers worked with free Negroes on Yellow Hill to bring others to freedom on the Underground Railroad. The area is still farmland yet today, some owned by descendents of early Quakers who came here in the 1700's. The hills are alive and spectacular in all four seasons!
Stay here and you can wake up and smell the blossoms! Stay at the Quaker Valley Guesthouse.
