Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
The public is invited to tour World War II encampments of over 500 living historians portraying Allied and Axis troops at Eisenhower National Historic Site’s World War II Weekend.
Living history volunteers will present programs throughout the weekend on WWII weapons and equipment, communications, medical services, military vehicles and the life of the common soldier. Several operational WWII vehicles will be on display.
The weekend also features talks by historians on a variety of WWII topics and a World War II style USO dance on Saturday, September 19th.
Eisenhower National Historic Site will be open to the public from 9am-5pm both days. Shuttle buses for the event depart every half hour from the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center located at 1195 Baltimore Pike. Weather permitting, free on-site parking for passenger vehicles only will be available in a farm field accessible off of Emmitsburg Road, Business Route 15. Bus groups and visitors using wheelchairs should plan to use the shuttle system. For reservations, call 1-877-874-2478 or visit the Gettysburg Foundation’s ticketing website.
