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.
Get outdoors at Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Visit Eisenhower National Historic Site and Jennie Wade House for their historical value. Step out of Gettysburg with an excursion to Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in Charles Town--about 1h 25 min away. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, learn about winemaking at Adams County Winery, take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, and admire the architecture and history at Lincoln Statue at Wills House.

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
