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.
Take a break from the city and head to Antietam National Battlefield and C&O Canal Hike at Point of Rocks Boat Ramp. Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center and Jennie Wade House will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Gallery On Madison (in Middleburg), Wild Hare Hard Cider (in Bluemont) and Frederick (Dragon Distillery, LLC & Historic Downtown Frederick). Next up on the itinerary: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, browse the exhibits of Shriver House Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To find more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Gettysburg route planning site .

July in Gettysburg sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 66°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
