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 at the Museum & Visitor Center for extended hours as we remain open until 8 pm on the third Thursday of each month (Sept. 19–final Third Thursday programming for the season). 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.
