After the unforgettable events that took place in Gettysburg in July 1863, many have told accounts of otherworldly occurrences by the spirits left behind. If you’re looking to get spooked and witness the unexplainable for yourself, check out this trip idea.

Begin your day at The Spirit of Gettysburg in the Gettysburg History Center. Here you’ll meet the ghosts of many key individuals from the Civil War including General Robert E. Lee, Jennie Wade and General Longstreet. Listen as they share their experiences from the famous three-day battle. This entertaining and educational experience will leave you with a great background on the history of the town.

Next, head to one of the town’s distilleries for a different kind of spirit. Enjoy craft cocktails, vodka, gin, rum, whiskey and more spirits for some liquid courage for your next venture. When you’re feeling ready for some paranormal activity, head to one of the town’s haunted restaurants. Who knows, maybe you’ll have an unexpected dinner guest. Or check out Dinner With a Ghost for a paranormal investigation with your meal.

Still haven’t seen a ghost? Go on a ghost tour after dinner, or if you’re really feeling brave, go on a paranormal investigation in this haunted town. Continue your spooky day with an overnight stay in one of the town’s haunted accommodations including the Baladerry Inn, Gettysburg Campground, Federal Pointe Inn, the Gettysburg Hotel, Farnsworth House Inn or Lightner Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast. You may want to sleep with one eye open in case you have some ghostly visitors!
