Wyndham Hotel near Historic Gettysburg Battlefield
Set on a 100-acre grassy campus just a few miles from Gettysburg’s historic battlefields, the Wyndham Gettysburg gives a nod to the past while offering amenities firmly rooted in the present. The Federal-style architecture harks back to the 1860s, and the decor is at once elegant and modern, with subtly patriotic touches such as blue carpets emblazoned with white stars. Unique offerings include a stylishly designed indoor pool and an onsite movie theater screening the latest Hollywood hits.
The $30 daily dining credit included with this Groupon can be used toward meals at either of the hotel’s two restaurants, 1863 and Lounge. The family-friendly 1863 is helmed by French-born executive chef Claude Rodier, who trained under several Michelin-rated chefs. The eatery is open for all meals and serves a variety of American favorites including burgers, steaks, and herb-roasted chicken.
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 the Cumberland Valley and is best known as the site of the Civil War’s most famous—and bloodiest—battle. Each year, throngs of 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.
The hilly landscape makes a picturesque backdrop for any number of seasonal outdoor activities, such as golf at The Links at Gettysburg, hiking, and skiing at Liberty Mountain Resort. Day trips to Harrisburg and Washington, DC, are easy—both capital cities are only 75 minutes away by car.
