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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Gettysburg National Military Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery, steep yourself in history at Little Round Top, and go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Gettysburg attractions tool .

In October, daily temperatures in Gettysburg can reach 67°F, while at night they dip to 48°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
