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 Bird in Hand Farmers Market and The Lion Potter of Gettysburg. Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Bedford Candies (in Bedford) and Crawford's Museum and 50 States Gifts and Souvenirs (in Breezewood). Pack the 5th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Hersheypark. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center, get some fabulous bargains at Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets, explore the galleries of U.S. Naval Academy, and see the interesting displays at The Hershey Story.
