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.
Go for a jaunt from Gettysburg to Sharpsburg to see Antietam National Battlefield about 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, snap pictures at Sachs Covered Bridge, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
