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.
The Gettysburg Heritage Center will once again host "Thunder on the Strip," a bike rally event! The Heritage Center will shift gears, and host vendors, bands, food and a beer and mixed drink tent. Beer Tent is organized and run by Buchanan Valley Volunteer Fire Department. Our event is family friendly.
Vendors include: bike LED lighting, parts, pin striping, clothing - including rally t-shirts, ladies wear, men's and more - sunglasses, shoes and boots, patches, leather goods, radios, bandannas, jewelry and much more!
*Bands stop playing at 10pm. Sunday's schedule is 10am-Noon.
This is held in conjunction with Gettysburg's annual bike event that brings thousands of people to Gettysburg for history, food and fun. If you love the rumble of motorcycles, this is the perfect time to head to Gettysburg. Whether you ride, or enjoy watching the bikes, there is plenty to keep you busy!
