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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Rupp House and Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters. Evergreen Cemetery and Old Bedford Village will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Ladew Topiary Gardens (in Monkton), C&O Canal National Historical Park (in Williamsport) and Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum (in Altoona). On the 16th (Tue), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. There's still lots to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, explore the world behind art at Gibson's Photographic Gallery, see the interesting displays at Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum, and take an in-depth tour of The State Museum of Pennsylvania.

To see traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Gettysburg trip planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
