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.
Bundle up if you are coming for a visit. A walk through town to hit our cool shops while collecting your holiday gifts will be brisk in December. Those days seem warm compared to January and February when the snow blankets the fields and sidewalks. You can expect temperatures to range from the 40s to the 30s during the day and dip in the evenings and overnight. We average about 3” of snow, but even the meteorologists struggle with predictions during winter. Be prepared to warm up by the fire in the evening – check to see which of our accommodations offer fireplaces before you book your room.
Cold or not, if you bundle up, Gettysburg is beautiful, peaceful and fun in the winter. It’s our little secret… for now.
