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.
Because summer is high travel season in Gettysburg, that means you will find the most happening. Outdoor dining is in full swing and our wineries are hosting outdoor concerts. Living History Encampments are set up each weekend on the battlefield and at several businesses 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 tour of the battlefield or pick-your-own at the farms followed by a dip in the pool and your friendly accommodation.
Summer is a great time for a full blown Gettysburg vacation for the entire family.
