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.
Begin your tasting experience in downtown Gettysburg where you’ll find several wine tasting rooms and a cider house with luscious libations to sample. For each unique beverage you try, collect a stamp in your Adams County Pour Tour passport! The more stamps you collect, the more amazing prizes you will earn.
As you stroll from one Pour Tour spot to another, check out the historic museums and trendy boutiques throughout the downtown area. If you get hungry, there are a number of restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the various tasting rooms. Comfort food, farm fresh dishes, pub fare… whatever you’re craving, we have it.
Make the short drive to Abbottstown, Pennsylvania to continue your tasting expedition. Abbottstown is home to a wine tasting room and a brewery - something sweet and something bold to round out your tasting experience for the day.
Head back to Gettysburg for the night. Shake things up with a ghost tour or catch live music at one of the local tasting rooms or bars. Stay in one of our cozy accommodations for the night to rest up for another busy day!
Get your morning off to a peaceful start with a serene walk on the battlefield. Then, head to the Adams County countryside to do some tastings. In nearby Orrtanna and Biglerville, you can sample wine, cider and beer at several Adams County Pour Tour stops. Don’t forget to claim your prizes as you collect stamps!
As you journey along the trail, be sure to stop by some of the farm markets you pass. Adams County is known for its fresh produce used in the wine, cider, beer and spirits along the Adams County Pour Tour, as well as in dishes at local restaurants. Pick-your-own produce to take along with you and stop at a farm to table restaurant for dinner before heading home.
