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: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, contemplate the long history of Eisenhower National Historic Site, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery.

To see more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Gettysburg vacation builder tool .

In September in Gettysburg, expect temperatures between 77°F during the day and 57°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
