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.
Enjoy an evening of ice skating in historic Gettysburg during the holidays. Bring the family for an evening of winter fun, or stroll hand-in-hand with your sweetheart in Gettysburg this winter.
A 1,055 square foot synthetic ice rink will be placed on Steinwehr Avenue from mid-November until right after the New Year. Ginette Johnson Prendergast Synthetic ice is a substitute for real ice which allows its users to practice ice skating without the energy costs of conventional ice skating rinks. You may bring your own ice skates to use on the synthetic rink, or there will be several pairs available for rental.
Thank you to Gettysburg Area Recreation Authority, the Gettysburg Borough, Destination Gettysburg and Steinwehr Avenue BID for making the Gettysburg Ice Rink possible.
Ice Rink Hours:
Saturday & Sunday: 1-8pm
*Ice rink will be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
