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 Gettysburg's surroundings by going to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). There's lots more to do: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, see the interesting displays at Gettysburg Museum of History, and explore the striking landscape at Devils Den.
