Spirit of Fall

With cooler temps and breathtaking fall foliage, autumn can be one of the best times to visit Gettysburg. There is so much beauty from the battlefield to the bountiful orchards of Adams County. Take a road trip and get lost amidst the rolling hillsides, history and fall flavors that make up Adams County, Pennsylvania.

Our orchards are brimming with ripe juicy apples, our trees are bursting with vibrant shades of yellow, orange and red and the spirits of Gettysburg are active in the fall. The days are the perfect temperature for battlefield tours by horse, bike, scoot coupe or Segway or to sit out in the countryside enjoying locally produced craft beverages along the Adams County Pour Tour.

Take the kids to the farm to pick their own apples and pumpkins or to get lost in a corn maze. Try out a ghost tour or paranormal excursion – whether you’re a believer or not, you will be encapsulated by the tales of those who haunt Gettysburg. End your day warmed up by the campfire, roasting marshmallows and sharing ghost stories of your own. And don’t miss the National Apple Harvest Festival in October. Look no further than Gettysburg for the perfect fall getaway.
