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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Gettysburg: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Hersheypark (in Hershey). And it doesn't end there: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, take in the history at Lincoln Statue at Wills House, steep yourself in history at Jennie Wade House, and examine the collection at Gettysburg Museum of History.
