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.
Do your shopping at Brown's Orchards and Farm Market and Adams County Winery. Let the collections at Gibson's Photographic Gallery and Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum (in Winchester), Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum (in Altoona) and Perrydell Farm Dairy (in York). Next up on the itinerary: immerse yourself in nature at Codorus State Park, examine the collection at Rupp House, explore the different monuments and memorials at Evergreen Cemetery, and trek along Catoctin Mountain Park.

Find out how to plan Gettysburg trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 63°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
