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 us and relax in the comfort of a rocking chair on the courtyard porches of the historic Rupp House.
Saturday, May 18: The Healing - Dawn Diehl and Linda Harris of the Civil War Historical Impressions will present conversations of Civil War Nurses. Join us for an opportunity to share in the emotional struggles of the women who pioneered professional nursing.

Saturday, May 25: A Soldier’s Sing-A-Long - Tom Fontana will host an evening of Civil War music.
