  • Standing on these rocks gives a perspective on how the strategy of both sides planned their attacks, a must to see.

  • Little Round Top is truly a must see. Along with the Visitor’s Center, the Museum, the Film, and the Cyclorama, this scenic overlook provides you with a strategic vantage point to scope out the sheer size of the battles that took place so long ago. Be careful walking up to the top, as it can be a little slippery. The trail is short and easy.
  • Little Round Top was quite lovely, and the rolling battle fields are simply awesomeness. The Appalachian Mountains are hard to put in words, how gorgeous, Purple Mountain Majesty. Down town had a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, and the whole town was lit up, too. Simply magical.
