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.
Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center and The Hershey Story will appeal to museum buffs. Head to Mister Ed's Elephant Museum and West Shore Farmers Marketfor some retail therapy. Explore Gettysburg's surroundings by going to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races (in Charles Town) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). Pack the 7th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Hersheypark. There's much more to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, get to know the fascinating history of Shriver House Museum, try your luck at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, and stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery.
