Many visitors vacation in Gettysburg multiple times a year and are always looking for new things to experience. Take a short day trip over to Hanover, Pennsylvania on your next vacation!

Drive through the beautiful countryside and make a stop at Hanover Shoe Farms, just 13 miles east of Gettysburg. Walk through the stables and admire the beautiful horses, many of which are retired racehorses. Visit in the spring if you want to see the mares and their new foals up close!

Next, head over to the Utz Quality Foods Factory Tour of one of Pennsylvania’s most popular snack foods. Learn about the production of Utz potato chips and other products and be sure to purchase some to bring home at the Utz Outlet Store just two blocks away.

If the factory tour made you hungry, The Markets at Hanover is perfect for your next stop. Whether you’re craving pizza, authentic Mexican cuisine, Korean or even wine, you’ll be pleased with your options at The Markets at Hanover. You’ll also find local produce and handmade crafts.

Now that you’ve satisfied your appetite, you’re energized and ready for a challenge. Escape Confusion is a great addition to your trip. Work together as a team to solve puzzles and escape from a unique room in 60 minutes or less!

Before heading back to Gettysburg, grab dinner at Warehouse Gourmet Bistro & Brewpub. We recommend their Crab Grilled Cheese and Cheddar sandwich paired with one of their refreshing craft brews. Top it all off with a Chocolate Chip Espresso Brownie.
