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.
Hikers of all ages and abilities will love exploring our trails! Spend an hour wandering down an easy loop, or opt for a day-long hike that connects to Michaux State Forest's extensive trail system. Trails are open to the public, dog-friendly and free of charge. Not a hiker? No problem! Meet the live animals in our nature center, including turtles, snakes and a barred owl. Play in the cool waters of Swamp and Middle Creeks, or explore our nature playground. Restrooms (with composting toilets!), picnic tables, a pavilion and potable water are available on-site. Check our website and Facebook page for community events, summer camps and public programs!
