Gettysburg
Located near the memorial park marking the site of one of the largest Civil War battles, the town of Gettysburg sits in a landscape of rolling green hills with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.
Venture out of the city with trips to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). There's still lots to do: stroll through Gettysburg National Military Park, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, have some family-friendly fun at Victorian Photography Studio, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Expect a daytime high around 21°C in October, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
