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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lincoln Caverns and Whisper Rocks and Rocking S Ranch. Change things up with these side-trips from Gettysburg: Altoona (Peoples Natural Gas Field & Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum), DelGrosso's Amusement Park (in Tipton) and Berkeley Springs (Cacapon Resort State Park, Spas & Wellness, & more). Spend the 27th (Mon) exploring nature at Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Old Bedford Village, admire all the interesting features of Clipper Magazine Stadium, sample the fine beverages at Bloomery Plantation Distillery, and examine the collection at Landis Valley Museum.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Gettysburg trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
