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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lincoln Caverns and Whisper Rocks and Rocky Gap State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Gettysburg side-trips: Cacapon Resort State Park (in Berkeley Springs), DelGrosso's Amusement Park (in Tipton) and Cascade Falls (in Pembroke). And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Codorus State Park, stroll through Catoctin Mountain Park, admire the architecture and history at Lincoln Statue at Wills House, and explore the striking landscape of The Eternal Light Peace Memorial.

For photos, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Gettysburg day trip planning tool .

In June, daytime highs in Gettysburg are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
