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.
One of the most incredible things about Adams County, Pa., is it’s farming community. Orchards cover more than 20,000 acres of land in Adams County, and those orchards provide both stunning scenery and unbelievably delicious fruit. Lots of fruit – Adams County growers harvest 280 million pounds of apples each year, as well as countless other fruits and vegetables.
Aside from enjoying that produce fresh, it’s amazing to see those fruits and vegetables turned into mouthwatering dishes. Many Gettysburg area restaurants incorporate seasonal, fresh produce in their dishes when possible, and for the second year, Adams County is celebrating that farm-to-fork idea with Bounty of the County. Bounty of the County is an extraordinary experience for those looking to embrace the taste of harvest season, and an amazing way to show appreciation for local farms and restaurants. During Bounty of the County, chefs at Gettysburg area restaurants turn donated, fresh-from-the-farm produce into dishes and meals that are not only visually stunning but also incredibly delicious. Take a look:
From August 9-18, visit participating Gettysburg area restaurants and order off of their specially crafted Bounty of the County menu to enjoy a meal made with local Adams County produce.
