Published June 11, 2012
Father’s Day is June 17th. This year, show dad some love with a Gettysburg Getaway. Here are some ideas for a trip Dad will remember!
Lunch or Dinner at McClellan’s Tavern:
McClellan’s Tavern’s famous Imperial Crab Dip is a must! Treat dad to this Old English Style pub, which features the Van Tromp Bar, a turn of the century solid mahogany bar brought back from Brick Lane in merrie England. McClellan’s Tavern is located at 1 Lincoln Square inside the Gettysburg Hotel.
Take a Tour of The Appalachian Brewing Company:
Nestled away in the lower level of their facility at 401 Buford Ave. in Gettysburg, resides a copper 10 bbl capacity system. ABC’s beers are hand-crafted using 100% natural ingredients and strict adherence to craft-brewing standards. Stop in and try their variations of classic beer styles from throughout the world. Call ahead to arrange for a guided visit!
