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.
The senses are on overload in the fall. Bright colors adorn the trees as autumn foliage takes over. The orchards are bursting with apples that land in our markets and turn up in fresh-baked pies, ciders and delicious desserts. You can smell the crispness that is fall in Gettysburg.
This is the perfect time of year to stay longer on the battlefield or on the deck at the local winery without fear of overheating. With many festivals you’ll want to plan an extra day to make time for our traditional experience to be expanded with extra fun and food. If planning an October visit, book early as this month can be as busy as a weekend in July – and if you visit, you will quickly see why.
It is never too early to bring the kids to Gettysburg – give them a taste of history, mix in some other fun, and you have a recipe for the perfect family vacation!Learn more about this trip idea
