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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Gettysburg: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Berkeley Springs State Park (in Berkeley Springs) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). There's lots more to do: stroll around Gettysburg National Military Park, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, contemplate the long history of Jennie Wade House, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery.

For traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Gettysburg trip planner .

In November in Gettysburg, expect temperatures between 53°F during the day and 36°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
