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.
Antietam National Battlefield and Jennie Wade House will appeal to history buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kitchen Kettle Village and Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center. Get out of town with these interesting Gettysburg side-trips: Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania (in Ronks), Lancaster (Rockvale Square Outlets, The Amish Farm and House, & more) and Bird in Hand Farmers Market (in Bird in Hand). Spend the 31st (Thu) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Pack the 8th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Hersheypark. There's much more to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, browse the eclectic array of goods at Leesport Farmer's Market, stop by The Lion Potter of Gettysburg, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
