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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). And it doesn't end there: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, have some family-friendly fun at Victorian Photography Studio, steep yourself in history at Jennie Wade House, and see the interesting displays at Gettysburg Museum of History.

To see reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Gettysburg trip planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
