Do not miss this historic site when visiting Gettysburg. It's like Ike and Mamie just stepped out for a moment. Every bit of kitch decorating is still in tact right down to the pink fuzzy toilet seat covers, ubiquitous ashtrays, and slipcovers. The park rangers provide excellent back ground on the Eisenhowers' life in Gettysburg. While I was a little leary of the self-guided tour format, it proved to be fine. The booklet was detailed and the grounds have a cell phone tour. Special highlights are the secret service office, the den, and Eisenhower's paintings. And, don't overlook Mamie's touch everywhere. You get a real sense of the first lady.
One note - even though this site is run by the National Park Service, your Park Pass does not gain you free entry.
