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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Evergreen Cemetery and Gettysburg National Military Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rupp House and Old Bedford Village. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: C&O Canal National Historical Park (in Williamsport), Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville) and Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters (in Winchester). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum, stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery, admire the architecture and history at Abraham Lincoln Statue, and see the interesting displays at Mister Ed's Elephant Museum.

Plan my trip to Gettysburg with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
