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: Berkeley Springs State Park (in Berkeley Springs), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). And it doesn't end there: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery, and steep yourself in history at Little Round Top.

To find photos, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Gettysburg driving holiday planner.

In October, daytime highs in Gettysburg are 67°F, while nighttime lows are 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
