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.
In summer of 2017, when a few friends were sitting around wondering why Gettysburg didn't have a Gay Pride Event yet, they decided to organize a bar crawl...in less than two weeks of course. They thought maybe a dozen people would show up. On June 22, 2017, over 80 people filled the bar at Gettysburg Hotel's One Lincoln. Pride flags, glow in the dark necklaces, and LOTS of smiles with friends old and new filled each bar as locals and visitors walked around historic Lincoln Square with PRIDE. Bars were welcoming as some staff members even wore Pride shirts just for that night.
The next year, even more people showed up for a full weekend of events of all kinds including: bar crawl, education/outreach and free rapid HIV testing and counseling, shopping discounts, NYC style piano bar cabaret and more. Many businesses in town sponsored Gettysburg Pride and covered downtown in pride flags. It was wonderful to see so many of our LGBT+ and straight allies come together for what is now known as the annual Gettysburg Pride.
Join us this year for more fun and pride in our open and accepting community! Be sure to find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and post photos of Pride! #gettysburgpride
