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 list of things to see and do now includes Gettysburg Museum of History, Big Round Top, Little Round Top, and other attractions. Your inner history buff will appreciate Gettysburg National Military Park and High Water Mark of the Rebellion Monument. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Evergreen Cemetery and 12th & 44th New York Infantry Monument. The adventure continues: witness the site of a historic battle at East Cavalry Battlefield, appreciate the history behind Virginia Memorial, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, and don't miss a visit to Vermont Monument.

To see traveler tips, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Gettysburg planning website .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 77°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
