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 (Harpers Ferry National Historical Park & The Point). Next up on the itinerary: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, get answers to all your questions at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, don't miss a visit to Devils Den, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

For reviews, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Gettysburg trip planning app .

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in October, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
