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.
Bring the whole family to a Civil War Christmas celebration at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. The Victorian Dance Ensemble will demonstrate dances and invite visitors to learn a dance from the era at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Artifacts of the 1860s will be on display. Come and see photography, newspapers and jewelry of the era. View a traditional table-top Christmas tree with candles and homemade ornaments. Learn about the Civil War custom of sending boxes to soldiers, especially during the winter, filled with food, clothing and love from home. This event is free and open to the public.
