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 time of year is the only time where you can see our historic homes and peaceful grounds, illuminated by candles and 1,000 luminaries. Your guide will take you on our historic homes tour, with the homes decorated for the holidays and lit by candlelight. A portion of the tour is outside on our grounds, which will be illuminated with 1,000 luminaries. Tours take place December 1-6, at 4:30pm, 5:30pm and 6:30pm. The tour costs $7 for adults, $5 for youth ages 7-18, and is free for children 6 and under. To reserve a tour time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The tours occur snow, rain or shine; please dress for the outdoors.
