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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters and Gettysburg National Cemetery. Explore hidden gems such as Evergreen Cemetery and Mister Ed's Elephant Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gettysburg: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Paw Paw Tunnel (in Cumberland) and Monocacy National Battlefield (in Frederick). And it doesn't end there: walk around Gettysburg National Military Park, examine the collection at Rupp House, explore the galleries of Shriver House Museum, and take in the history at Lincoln Statue at Wills House.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Gettysburg trip planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
