  • Lot of foot traffic on weekends.
  • I have been at Gettysburg 5 times for a vacation and I absolutely loved all the history and it made social studies way back when, come alive. We stayed at a hotel right by General Lee's Headquarters. Still have the history magazines we got there and our photos. To stand right where the action happened is "chilling", especially at the Peach Orchard where the bloodiest part happened. You got to go to Gettysburg!
