Winter Getaway

Discover Gettysburg, Pa, this winter for a weekend getaway or a mid-week escape. Whether you are looking for outdoor adventure, history or a quiet escape, Gettysburg is ready to welcome you. Spend a few days enjoying our food, shops and each other and rejuvenate your soul to start a new year.

If you are looking for adventure, head to Liberty Mountain Resort where you can ski and board with downhill and park options. You can also have a ball cruising down the snow tube hill – friends or family, it’s fun for all. And don't miss ice skating with friends and family. You’ll find a variety of activities scheduled throughout the season. Don’t forget to hit the tavern for a warm drink and bite to eat.

Winter is a great time to take in the history. It may be a little chilly outside, but there is something beautiful about fresh snow on the battlefields. Be sure to make time for the Presidents, whether on their special weekend or anytime – you’ll learn about Lincoln and Eisenhower through tours and museums.

Maybe all you need is a little time away. If so, just escape to a little inn, a cool cabin or a comfy hotel. Wander the shops, taste our wines and ciders and discover the new Gettysburg foodie scene. You will quickly find that Gettysburg is your new favorite place to make your own history.
