Gettysburg is approximately 38 miles southeast of Harrisburg in Pennsylvania. With the city's history rooted in the Civil War, you can visit the Shriver House Museum, a restored 1860's home, to learn about civilian life during and after the Battle of Gettysburg. There is more history on display at the Lincoln Train Museum, which celebrates President Lincoln and the railroads of the United States. But for those looking for some outdoor fun, you can visit the Links at Gettysburg to play golf on a scenic course with lakes and rolling hills.
To travel to Gettysburg, you can fly in and out of Gettysburg Regional Airport (GRA). U.S. Route 30 also runs through the city and will take you south to I-81, which travels southwest through Pennsylvania to Tennessee. Once in town, Gettysburg offers transportation in the form of the Freedom Transit trolley, which is a historic trolley replica. For accommodations, you can stay in the Lincoln Square area that has many inns and bed and breakfasts that were built in the 19th century.
You will enjoy touring Gettysburg National Military Park during the fall, when the average high temperature is 66 degrees, or during the summer when the average is 86 degrees. You can even ride a horse or a Segway through the park to see where the Battle of Gettysburg was fought in 1863. During the Fourth of July celebration, you can see a re-enactment of this famous battle.
