Plan Your Gettysburg Trip



Discover the culinary side of Gettysburg. From our ethnic and period restaurants to our farm markets, from our beer and wine events to our apple themed festival, you will quickly discover how delicious a visit to Gettysburg can be. And you thought we were just history!

Many of our visitors have been coming for years. They came for the Civil War History but discovered what the locals love just as much - our food! Some like to take it all in at once on the new Savor Gettysburg Food Tour. Others like to create their own tastings at our many restaurants, wineries, sweet shops and events. Don't forget to also check out the many orchards and farm markets throughout the area - - we are No. 1 for apples in Pa, so be sure to grab a few for road.
