Enchanting Main Street - Gettysburg

In Gettysburg, best known as the battleground of the bloodiest and most important engagement of the Civil War, history is paramount. The past and all its captivating detail cannot be glossed over in a trip to this city, where at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center patrons will be immersed in the major events of the Civil War through a twenty minute film narrated by Morgan Freeman, an immersive depiction of Pickett’s Charge in the iconic Gettysburg Cyclorama, and a variety of other interactive exhibits. Then visitors will want to tour the 6,000 acre military park via whatever means suits them best: by horse, Segway, carriage, bus, from your own car with a guide, or on your own with an iPad. Whether a history buff or a mere initiate to the intricacies of this crucial battle, no matter how you choose to rendezvous with history, the Battle of Gettysburg is sure to come alive for you.

The magnificence of the Gettysburg of the past need not eclipse its ongoing appeal for today’s modern, multifaceted visitors. A popular destination for agritourism, paranormal tours, craft beverage tastings, golfing, and a selection of spas and resorts, there is plenty to do that surpasses the confines of historical Gettysburg. While maintaining much of its historic charm and architecture, Gettysburg’s downtown square hosts more than gift shops and small museums: it is a vibrant center for a range of dining and shopping. Downtown Gettysburg provides comforting casual diners as well as upscale restaurants, and in addition to arts and crafts galleries, it offers a selection of boutique, antique, and organic shopping for locating those one-of-a-kind rare finds to memorialize your trip.
