As we all know, a decisive and very bloody Civil War battle took place in Gettysburg in 1863. Therefore, the town is home to an entire treasure trove of important US history.
The Gettysburg National Military Park covers a tremendous area you can explore along 40 miles of beautiful scenic roads speckled with over 1,000 monuments and cannons. If you’re looking for a fun way to see it all, jump aboard a Gettysburg Battlefield Bus Tour.
And once you’ve had your fill of Civil War history, you can visit the Lincoln Train Museum and the Gettysburg Railroad Station Museum.
This is an excellent stop for families because they can take the children to see the Land of Little Horses, while foodies can taste some regional food at a few diverse venues on a Savor Gettysburg Food Tour.
