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.
Join Civil War Institute’s Dr. Peter Carmichael; Gettysburg NMP’s Chris Gwinn; and Shepherd University’s Dr. James Broomall for a FREE guided walking tour of Culp’s Hill!
They will provide diverse perspectives and little-known stories of the fighting on Culp’s Hill. No reservations are necessary; those interested in participating should meet at Spangler’s Spring (Gettysburg NMP) at 9:30am. The tour will conclude at 12:30pm.
**Following the walking tour, there will be a special presentation hosted by John Heckman, aka the "Tattooed Historian". He will conduct a live interactive interview with Dr. James Broomall & Chris Gwinn at Gettysburg Heritage Center (297 Steinwehr Ave). FREE and open to the public, this interview will focus on “Letters from Gettysburg,” including a wrenchingly candid letter from John Futch, who fought at Culp’s Hill with the 3rd North Carolina, losing his brother in the process. Tour participants are encouraged to stay for this lively and interactive program, which will offer plenty of opportunities for questions from the audience.
