Request a Media Visit

Destination Gettysburg welcomes journalists interested in visiting for coverage for future stories

Thank you for interest in visiting Gettysburg and Adams County, Pa.

Destination Gettysburg’s communications team is happy to assist media with a visit to our destination for upcoming stories.

Please allow three weeks advance notice for media hosting and itinerary assistance. If you are unable to meet the three-week notification, we will try our best to accommodate you. In addition, we request that you send two samples of travel-related articles or coverage published in the past 12 months.

The level in which we assist journalists is based on our evaluation of a journalist’s assignment, scope of story, audience and social media reach. Depending on the story assignment, Destination Gettysburg can assist with accommodations, passes to attractions, meals, escorts, etc.

Please note that complimentary arrangements are provided at the discretion of the host business and are subject to availability. Black-out periods can occur that may necessitate a press rate, particularly at hotels.

Journalists are responsible for their own transportation to and from Gettysburg. However, Destination Gettysburg can assist in transportation in and around Gettysburg and Adams County as part of the tour.

In addition, please understand that our primary concern is assisting working media, and host locations are not always able to accommodate accompanying spouses, children, friends and other family members.

At the discretion of Destination Gettysburg, travel writers may bring a guest or family members on media tours. However, those guests may be responsible for the cost of his or her own meals and/or attractions.

Please allow three weeks advance notice for media hosting and itinerary assistance. If you are unable to meet the three-week notification, we will try our best to accommodate you.
