Destination Gettysburg

Gettysburg is widely known for the epic Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. But today, Gettysburg is quickly becoming known for its scenic views of farms and bountiful orchards, our craft beverages, quaint downtown shops and an amazing foodie scene.

Tour the battlefield, explore our craft beverage scene, shop local at our farm markets, take in a round of golf, or simply relax at one of our many bed and breakfasts or campgrounds. See where President Eisenhower lived. Stay a few days so you can wander through boutiques in our historic towns or find your own treasure to take home at one of our many local antique
shops.

Enjoy a special event – make plans for an apple festival, two bluegrass festivals, a cider fest, brew fest, or wine & music festival, our 4th of July Community Concert & Fireworks, and even a 19th Century Base Ball Festival. If you can’t make the annual July reenactment, engage with history at a Living History Encampment or demonstration held each weekend April through October.

Pack the car, bring the kids or a group of friends and discover why so many return again and again to Gettysburg and scenic Adams County. Visit our website or download our My Gettysburg app for special deals and discounts, a calendar of upcoming festivals and events, and trip building tools. Make your own history!
