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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center and Gettysburg National Military Park. Visit Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park for their historical value. Explore Gettysburg's surroundings by going to United States Army Heritage and Education Center (in Carlisle), Frederick (The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center, Echo Consignments and Antiques, & more) and Brown's Orchards and Farm Market (in Loganville). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Gettysburg Museum of History, stop by The Christmas Haus, take in the exciting artwork at Village Artisans Gallery, and steep yourself in history at Little Round Top.
