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: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, contemplate the long history of Eisenhower National Historic Site, take an in-depth tour of Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

For photos, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Gettysburg trip planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 67°F, and evening lows to 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
