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.
You've now added Gettysburg Museum of History to your itinerary. Head to Brown's Orchards and Farm Market and Pennsylvania Dutch Marketfor plenty of shopping. Do some cultural sightseeing at Eisenhower National Historic Site and Antietam National Battlefield. Venture out of the city with trips to Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick), Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship (in Purcellville) and Hashawha Environmental Center & Bear Branch Nature Center (in Westminster). Spend the 9th (Tue) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's much more to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, take in the exciting artwork at Village Artisans Gallery, and look for all kinds of wild species at East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue.
