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.
Visiting Lincoln Caverns and Whisper Rocks and Cunningham Falls State Park will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters and Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum. Explore Gettysburg's surroundings by going to Landis Valley Museum (in Lancaster), National Watch and Clock Museum (in Columbia) and Ephrata Cloister (in Ephrata). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Roadside America, get engrossed in the history at National Toy Train Museum, admire the majestic nature at Catoctin Mountain Park, and take in the history at Monocacy National Battlefield.

To find more things to do and tourist information, read our Gettysburg visit planner .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 63°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
