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.
Located about 30 miles northeast of Gettysburg is a 2,339-acre full service park in northern York County. Visitors can enjoy outdoor recreational activities at their leisure, picnic, camp and learn about the park’s natural environment.
The park offers a wide variety of environmental education and interpretive programs year-round including hands-on activities, guided walks and evening programs. Participants gain appreciation, understanding, and develop a sense of stewardship toward natural and cultural resources through these programs.
Pontoon boat tours of the lake are offered spring through fall. For more detailed information contact the park office.
The environmental learning center in the Conewago Day Use Area is open weekends during the summer. Visitors can explore the center's exhibits to discover more about the park’s natural environment.
Curriculum-based environmental education programs are available to schools and youth groups on topics such as adaptations, seasonal habitats, bird life, insects, forest ecosystems and lake ecology.
