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 were few printed maps of the States, North or South, at the start of the Civil War in 1861. Generals depended on simple maps drawn by scouts sent across the countryside with only paper and colored pencils to sketch the location of towns, farms, roads, woods, fields, streams and hills.
In "Map Camp," our Farnsworth House Inn Victorian-era civilian or soldier will teach you how to draw an authentic map of the Gettysburg Battlefield using the simple tools of a Civil War map maker. This one-hour program requires no map drawing experience or artistic talent, and is appropriate for children and adults of all ages. At the end of the program, we will preserve your creation in plastic laminate for you to keep as a souvenir of your visit.
