Family Connections

Gettysburg has always been about connecting with history – whether it be learning about the Civil War, finding an ancestor who fought here or understanding what the Civil War, the Battle of Gettysburg or the Gettysburg Address means to us today. As a vacation destination, Gettysburg is also a place for families to slow down and reconnect with each other.

Exploring the history of Gettysburg is why millions of people visit Gettysburg each year. Touring the battlefield, visiting the museums, interacting with living historians all allow us to connect with the historical happening of 1863. By walking in the footsteps of the soldiers and civilians of the time, we reconnect with our past and understand the impact this great tragedy still has on us today.

So many are drawn here because of family connects to the battle, others are drawn here to reconnect with their family of today. What better way to create memories than a visit to Gettysburg to bike the battlefield, hike across Pickett’s Charge or tour the town to learn about families like your own. Of course you have to mix in the fun with miniature golf tournaments, hikes at Strawberry Hill, go-kart races, pick-your-own fruit activities at our farms and outstanding concerts and festivals. Get ready to post your pics – you won’t want to forget one moment of your family time together.
