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.
Visit Paw Paw Tunnel and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park for their historical value. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Appalachian National Scenic Trail and Gibson's Photographic Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Gettysburg side-trips: Winchester (Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters, Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum, & more), Cacapon Resort State Park (in Berkeley Springs) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Mister Ed's Elephant Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery, witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, and get engrossed in the history at The State Museum of Pennsylvania.

To plan Gettysburg vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
