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.
Our popular Santa Express trains are back on the schedule this year with holiday cheer for all ages. Riders will hear the Night Before Christmas and Christmas music in anticipation of a visit from the man in red. There will be a lot of excitement on the train as Santa boards the train and hands out a small gift to the children. You will be able to take pictures with Santa, and he will be joined by the Snow Queen and her friends from the Enchanted Teapot!
There will be hot chocolate, cookies and music in the station prior to departure. Join us for these entertaining and fun rides.
The coaches are pushed and pulled by the vintage diesel locomotive. This is a 45 minute long excursion.
Tickets will be printed and be available for pick up at the ticket booth on the day of the excursion. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to departure.
