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 honor of Women’s History Month, Shannon Harvey, vice president, HACC’s Gettysburg Campus, will highlight Emma Gatewood who survived years of domestic abuse and in 1962, at the age of 67, became the first female to walk the 2,050 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Her story is the basis of the book Grandma Gatewood’s Walk by Ben Montgomery. Her story, as described by the author, is one of “overcoming hardship and finding yourself and finding peace.” Ed Riggs, volunteer, Appalachian Trail Museum, will talk about his own hiking experience and updated information on the Appalachian Trail today. This session will be held in the Robert C. Hoffman Community Room.
