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.
Bring the kids along to DelGrosso's Amusement Park and Codorus State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to 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, see the interesting displays at Gettysburg Museum of History, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery.

In July, daytime highs in Gettysburg are 84°F, while nighttime lows are 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
