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 some cultural insight at Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters and Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Old Bedford Village and Rupp House. Explore Gettysburg's surroundings by going to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum (in Winchester). Next up on the itinerary: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery, appreciate the extensive heritage of Shriver House Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.
