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.
Attractions like Hersheypark and The Hershey Story make great kid-friendly stops. Museum-lovers will appreciate Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center and Shriver House Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont) and Troegs Brewing Company (in Hershey). Spend the 10th (Thu) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's still lots to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, see the interesting displays at Mister Ed's Elephant Museum, browse the fresh offerings at Brown's Orchards and Farm Market, and contemplate the long history of Eisenhower National Historic Site.

To find reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Gettysburg online journey planner .

In October, daily temperatures in Gettysburg can reach 67°F, while at night they dip to 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
