#4 of 9 in Historic Sites in Gettysburg
Eisenhower National Historic Site is the former home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. As you drive toward the house, notice the 50 spruce trees that line the road to represent the 50 states. Inside, you'll see furniture and decor that was present when the Eisenhowers still lived here, as well as artifacts that honor the president's legacy. A successful cattle operation is managed on the farmland, and a tour of the working ranch is included in the admission price. A shuttle bus from the nearby Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center is included in your admission fee.

    It was pretty neat to see the home of a former president. It shows that they are people too, but their job is to protect and lead our country. Also, I thought it was cool to sit on the lawn ;)

    It is well worth the $9.00 for this tour. It gives you a great view of General Esinhower and Mamie.

    Love the site, just hate having to be tied down to the bus schedule. Could spend hours here exploring the grounds and the farm. Most people overlook the park because they're all into the gettysburg experience, but they're forgetting that history was shaped in gettysburg not just by the civil war, but by the man who lived and governed here nearly 100 years later.

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.
