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.
Get out of town with these interesting Gettysburg side-trips: 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, appreciate the extensive heritage of Shriver House Museum, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and steep yourself in history at Dobbin House Tavern.
