Gettysburg ©
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 historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Gettysburg National Cemetery. Museum-lovers will appreciate Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center and Gettysburg Museum of History. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Hershey (The Hershey Story, Hersheypark, & more), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Harrisburg (National Civil War Museum, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Capitol Complex, & more). Spend the 7th (Tue) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Jennie Wade House, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, take in the history at Lincoln Statue at Wills House, and have some family-friendly fun at Victorian Photography Studio.

For maps, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Gettysburg trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 71°F in May, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
