Take a drive beyond the battlefield.

Gettysburg and the Civil War history has been the draw to our area for over 150 years. For those of us who live here, and for many who have visited, it is the beautiful countryside filled with farms, wineries, recreation and Civil War history, that has charmed us. Take a drive beyond the battlefield, discover covered bridges, unique history and beautiful preserves. 

Just because you are on vacation doesn't mean you stop being healthy. Pick up your copy of this booklet and select from half-mile to 4 mile scenic healthy walks.
