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.
Third Thursdays bring extended hours and new programs to the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center for summer 2019, as the Gettysburg National Military Park and Gettysburg Foundation extend opportunities to visit and explore the park. The Museum & Visitor Center extends its normal hours and remains open until 8 pm on the third Thursday of each month (June 20, July 18, August 15 and September 19). In addition to more time to explore the museum and tour the battlefield with a Licensed Guide, visitors have the opportunity to enjoy a line-up of new, exclusive summer programming on Third Thursdays.
