Gettysburg

Trip Planner USA  /  Pennsylvania  /  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. Just north of the city spreads the "Fruit Belt" of Pennsylvania, known for its sprawling apple orchards and vineyards. Gettysburg itself is a small town, home to only about 7,000 permanent residents. Despite its size, the town boasts many historical attractions, such as private museums that display vast collections of authentic Civil War firearms, uniforms, and other memorabilia. The town's true charm, however, comes from the numerous historical buildings that give Gettysburg its Colonial feel. Each year over 300,000 people take a trip here to attend the town's famous battle reenactments. If planning a holiday during that time, you must reserve your accommodations several months in advance. Gettysburg is in Pennsylvania (PA). Make your own Gettysburg vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United States attractions planner.

Where to stay in Gettysburg

Though Gettysburg offers plenty of lodging options to suit every visitor's budget, remember that you must reserve your room at least a few months ahead of time if you plan to attend the popular battle reenactments. Many inns in the heart of town offer both a sense of history and many modern amenities, including exercise facilities and both indoor and outdoor pools. You can also choose to stay at a comfortable hotel just northwest of the area's historical battlefield complex, located only minutes from downtown.
