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.
Step out of the city life by going to Codorus State Park and The Eternal Light Peace Memorial. Museum-lovers will get to explore Renfrew Museum and Park and Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gettysburg: Hershey's Chocolate World (in Hershey), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and C&O Canal National Historical Park (in Williamsport). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, examine the collection at Rupp House, admire the architecture and history at Abraham Lincoln Statue, and explore the world behind art at Gibson's Photographic Gallery.

For photos, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Gettysburg day trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
