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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sweet Arrow Lake County Park and Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters. Your inner history buff will appreciate Evergreen Cemetery and Antietam National Battlefield. Explore Gettysburg's surroundings by going to Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park (in Hagerstown) and Harrisburg (Wildwood Park & Cathedral of Saint Patrick). There's much more to do: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, explore the wealth of natural beauty at The Eternal Light Peace Memorial, see the interesting displays at Rupp House, and take in the history at Abraham Lincoln Statue.

For ratings, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Gettysburg online route maker .

In August, daily temperatures in Gettysburg can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 63°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
