Four Places to Visit During your Upcoming Trip To Gettysburg
Published May 31, 2019
We’re fully enjoying spring and getting excited for the first official day of summer later this month on June 21st. The nostalgia of spring and summer break as a kid, the beautiful weather, and the time for family trips all help to appreciate the season. One of my all-time favorite places to spend those lovely summer days is Gettysburg. There are an endless amount of events going on that you can get lost having fun no matter the day. I’ve compiled a list of a handful of things you can do here this spring and summer and can’t wait for you to enjoy them.
Visit the Gettysburg National Military Park
We all know Gettysburg for being the location of the Civil War battle that took place over 150 years ago. Today, the battlefields are a National Park full of monuments and reenactments honoring the time. Visiting the park is a great way to get outdoors and learn about the history of the battle. The best way to see the battlefield and understand the significance of the battles is to take a guided tour. There are many options though, including a bus tour, a self-drive route, a bike tour, and even a Segway tour. For more information about the tours and park, visit nps.gov/gett.
Adams County Pour Tour
Discover Adams County through treating your palate on a self-guided tasting tour of craft wine, beer, cider, and spirits. Collect stamps on your Adams Country Pour Tour passport, available along with trail maps, as you journey through Gettysburg’s downtown tasting rooms and throughout the Adams County countryside. The bountiful orchards, vineyards, and farmlands that produce flavorful fruits, hops, honey, and grains that are turned into amazing craft beverages for your enjoyment. As you collect the unique stamps, you will be eligible to collect a prize for 5, 12 and 20 stamps. For more information, visit destinationgettysburg.com/pourtour.
