I grew up just east of Gettysburg. Whenever I take new people back home, I bring them to Gettysburg. You can still feel the aura of what happened here. Plenty to see and do.

We did the Grey Line bus tour from Washington which proved to be a great way to get a days taste of the Gettysburg story.

Start at visitors center with movie, cyclorama and museum. For first timers, get cd or ipad tour of park. If you want to spend more and ask questions, rent a tour guide for your car. Money well spent.

We visited the museum / visitor center the night we arrived, and saw sooo many interesting things and read some amazing facts. The next day, we drove through the park, in awe of the headstones, statues, and history that happened where we were. Very large area, for a battle that shouldn't have been. Needed more time there than we had,... More

I would recommend buying the cd for the audio tour. It is very well worth it. Do noy buy at the Parks gift shop, to expensive. Buy it in downtown Gettyburg in one of the quaint shops.
