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.
Come kick off the holiday season with us in Downtown Hanover at our annual Christmas Parade!
The parade steps off at 9 am from the Baer Ave. Playground and follows East Middle Street to York Street, where it heads towards it’s ending spot, Center Square and Santa’s Cabin, located at the South West quadrant in Center Square. Best place to take in the parade is along Broadway leading into Center Square. Santa arrives on the local fire trucks last in the parade and is preceded by the South Western Marching Band. Santa greets the crowd and begins seeing families at the Santa’s Cabin.
Floats and walking groups love showing off their Christmas spirit with unique decorations and fun mascots. Kids can expect candy and families can enjoy the holiday kick-off in Hanover!
