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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ephrata Cloister and Antietam National Cemetery. Visit David Wills House and Evergreen Cemetery for their historical value. Explore Gettysburg's surroundings by going to Patsy Cline House (in Winchester), Hershey (Giant Center & Cullari Vineyards and Winery) and Bloomery Plantation Distillery (in Charles Town). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Paw Paw Tunnel, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church, learn about winemaking at Adams County Winery, and take in the history at Monocacy National Battlefield.
