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.
Get out of town with these interesting Gettysburg side-trips: Berkeley Springs State Park (in Berkeley Springs), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's lots more to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, contemplate the long history of Jennie Wade House, get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, and stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery.
