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 inner history buff will appreciate Evergreen Cemetery and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station and Rupp House will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters (in Winchester), Cacapon Resort State Park (in Berkeley Springs) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, explore the wealth of natural beauty at The Eternal Light Peace Memorial, and examine the collection at National Museum of the American Coverlet.

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
