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.
There is always something new to do during Gettysburg summer seasons. Outdoor dining is in full swing and many spots along the Adams County Pour Tour craft beverage trail host outdoor concerts. Festival season is upon us and from peach to bluegrass and Irish to baseball, there’s sure to be something that will peak your interest. Living History Encampments are set up each weekend on the battlefield and you are sure to see a few soldiers and civilians strolling the streets as though it is still the 1860s. It’s a great time for a horseback or Segway tour of the battlefield. Pick-your-own fresh juicy cherries, blueberries and strawberries at the farms followed by a refreshing dip in the pool at your friendly accommodation.
Summer is a great time for a week-long Gettysburg vacation for the entire family.
Let’s be honest, our kids love their mobile devices – their phones and tablets are all but connected to them. That is why Gettysburg is the place to bring them – they can use them, but they will likely want to put them down. Really… just try it.Learn more about this trip idea
