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.
This weekend event will commemorate the entry of the US into World War I, as well as Eisenhower’s role as post commander of Camp Colt, the US Army’s WWI tank training center located on the Gettysburg Battlefield. A living history camp with soldiers and historic vehicles will be on site and special programs will be offered.
