Gettysburg

Gettysburg ©
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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Evergreen Cemetery and Rupp House History Center. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gettysburg: Landis Valley Museum (in Lancaster), Bloomery Plantation Distillery (in Charles Town) and Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville). There's much more to do: do a tasting at Adams County Winery, stop by Olio Olive Oils & Balsamics, and immerse yourself in nature at Catoctin Mountain Park.

To see traveler tips, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Gettysburg trip itinerary website

Expect a daytime high around 65°F in October, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
