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.
Explore hidden gems such as Rocking S Ranch and Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters. Get out of town with these interesting Gettysburg side-trips: Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville), Harrisburg (Wildwood Park & The State Museum of Pennsylvania) and Cacapon Resort State Park (in Berkeley Springs). On the 3rd (Fri), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. The adventure continues: stroll around Gettysburg National Military Park, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Statue at Wills House, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, and see the interesting displays at Gettysburg Museum of History.
