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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Gettysburg: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). The adventure continues: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and steep yourself in history at Eisenhower National Historic Site.

To see where to stay, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Gettysburg trip itinerary maker tool .

In June, daytime highs in Gettysburg are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
