Vino, Vino Everywhere
If you love a good vineyard tour and tasting, Gettysburg is the place for you! Explore one or all of the beautiful wineries that surround the historic town center, from the simple-yet-elegant Adams County Winery to the spectacular 200-year-old tasting room at Knob Hall Winery.
Vineyards are great places to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery. Just remember to bring a designated driver or call a driving service so you can enjoy the atmosphere risk-free! Not into wine? There are several cideries and distilleries in the immediate area as well!
Pick Your Own Produce
Who doesn’t love apple picking in the fall? What about pumpkin picking? In Gettysburg, you can do it all! Walk through the orchards with your loved one or peruse the bountiful farmer’s markets to find the freshest produce in the area.
Check out Boyer Orchards in Biglerville to pick the biggest, juiciest apples you can find – eat them on the spot or take them home to bake a beautiful homemade pie!
Step Back in Time…
Explore the streets of historic Gettysburg and travel back in time with the amazing period actors and actresses walking the town. Hear them recount the days of old and how the historic Battle of Gettysburg shaped their everyday lives during those sweltering July days.
Walk through the streets that were once crowded with horses, carts, carriages, and even soldiers – step into one of the taverns and enjoy the meals that the people of historic Gettysburg would have enjoyed. Take care, though – stay too long, and you may get more than you bargained for.
…And Hear Their Stories
If you dare to stay in town past sundown, you could experience a ghostly encounter or two. Gettysburg is widely recognized as one of the most haunted towns in the world – let the spirits tell you their own stories!
