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.
Balloon rides, murder, tanks, medal of honor....some of Gettysburg's colorful and unusual history happened in taverns.
Stroll with a Gettysburg Licensed Town Historian/Guide to the sites of Gettysburg's most historic taverns and hear unusual but true stories that took place at these legendary watering holes. Your Historian/Guide will regale you with stories about presidents, fires, Civil War activities and Temperance societies. While you will not be purchasing any drinks during the tour, you can enjoy libations after the tour with a voucher from Knob Hall Winery for two free wine tastings and 20% off on bottle sales and a complimentary beverage (house wine or draft beer) voucher from the Gettysburg Hotel.
Meet your Historian/Guide behind the Gettysburg Hotel in the courtyard a 6pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evening. This is a 90 minute walking tour. Reservations requested but walk-ins accepted. (Cash only, we do not accept credit cards.)
