Gettysburg, Pennsylvania: Civil War Battlefields Set in Rolling Hills and Valleys
A little more than 100 miles west of Philadelphia, Gettysburg lies in the scenic hills of southern Pennsylvania's Cumberland Valley. The town is probably best known as the site of the Civil War’s most famous—and bloodiest—battle. Each year, visitors flock to the 20,000-acre Gettysburg National Military Park, where Union soldiers defeated General Robert E. Lee’s Confederate troops and turned the tide of the war. Led by a Civil War expert, you can take a guided tour of the battlefields, or you can drop by Gettysburg National Cemetery, the spot where President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.
The hilly landscape makes a picturesque backdrop for a number of seasonal outdoor activities, such as golf at The Links at Gettysburg or skiing and snowboarding at Liberty Mountain Resort, a few miles outside of town. Day trips to Baltimore and Washington, DC, are easy—both cities are about a 90-minute drive from Gettysburg.
