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 senses are on overload in the fall. Bright colors adorn the trees as autumn foliage takes over. The orchards are bursting with apples that land in our markets and turn up in fresh-baked pies, ciders and delicious desserts. You can smell the crispness that is fall in Gettysburg.

With many festivals you’ll want to plan an extra day to make time for our traditional experience to be expanded with extra fun and food.

Gettysburg is a destination for activity, so be sure to pack your running, walking, hiking, biking, golfing shoes. From touring the battlefield to the nature preserve, you will be on the move and keeping healthy while having fun.Learn more about this trip idea
