Introduction:
There are as many ways to explore our area as there are interests of the visitors who come here. For those interested in seeing the battlefields of Gettysburg, some relax on an air-conditioned bus listening to a recorded story. There are those who drive in their own car with an auto tape tour and others hire a Licensed Battlefield Guide to ride with them to explain the three famous days in 1863.  The hearty take the National Park Service self-guided walking tours or join the crowd of a park ranger led tour. And the adventurists enjoy touring the 40 miles of battlefield roads by bicycle or galloping across the 5,700 acres of field by horseback.

Further understand the courage and hardships of the soldiers by visiting our ten Civil War related museums or take an authentic Civil War house tour by day and a haunted ghost tour by night. Live theater includes a personal visit with "President Lincoln", Civil War plays and ghost stories. Throughout the year you can talk to the soldiers in encampments and reenactments.

And there is more history here than the three days in 1863! View artifacts of  the 200+ years of Gettysburg and the area at the Adams County Historical Society.  Enjoy a country drive through the largest fruit belt in Pennsylvania or explore the eighteenth century with one of our county driving tours.

When you've had enough of history, enjoy fun things like a cool train ride through the beautiful countryside, ride on miniature horses, view a magic town, ski the slopes and quench your thirst at a local brewery or winery.  Play a game of golf at one of our area's 12 professional and miniature golf courses. Be sure to check the events calendar on this web site for a listing of all the special events and festivals that are taking place throughout the year.

Stay in a convenient motel, a cozy bed & breakfast or a fun campground and when you're hungry you can choose from national chain fast food eateries or restaurants with light fare, fine and historic dining. Take home a reminder of your visit with a souvenir, antique, historic print, Civil War relic, book, video tape or locally-made craft from one of our many shops.
