Highlight of our trip to Gettysburg, of course was the National Military Park. Not being a history fan, I didn't know how I'd react. We purchased a Auto Tour CD from our camp store the day before we went. The auto CD tour takes about 3 hours, and it flies by. There are street # signs with a star emblem... More

This trip we were able to enjoy the efforts of a park ranger giving historic information about the visit of Mr. Lincoln.

We took the vehicle self guided tour (via cassette tape from my wife's last visit a decade ago!) and it was very informative. This same tour is now available on an app or digital media. Allowed us to stop as and when we chose to. Thoroughly recommend watching the film and visiting the cyclorama at the visitor center. For children,... More

I never get bored coming here year after year on Vacation from Ohio ..I love Gettysburg. You have a very large area to enjoy the history. I personally "GhostHunt" and have picked up a great evp this last time...But the first and foremost reason coming here is the beautiful land, the history, and hubbing out to visit other sites.

I'd heard good things about the bus tour and we had planned to take a bus tour before we explored on our own. The owner of our B&B recommended we hire a tour guide and, my oh my, it was so worth the little extra we paid. Rich drove our car so we could look and didn't need to navigate.... More

The highlight of our trip was touring the Gettysburg National Battlefield. We took the Auto Tour route and stopped and got out at many different places. It's great that we can see and learn history right where it happened.

Wonderful tribute to those who died. Be sure to look for the flag on the grave in the local cemetery. That is the grave of the only woman to die during the civil war. President Lincoln also gave his speech somewhere between that grave and the current day fence that separates the two ceremonies.

Hard to say anything negative about the park. To grasp what happened there, and to see what the National Park Service has done to maintain it. Can't wait to come back.

Until you go and visit the battlefield it is difficult to understand exactly how wide and vast it is. You also really appreciate what happened here when you have the chance to walk amongst the history.

If you like history, this is for you. Amazing place to visit. Lots to see and do. I highly recommend reserving a tour guide to drive your car and take you around. Our guide, Gar, was really great. Very knowledgeable and made the whole trip really interesting. The guides know their stuff and can answer any of your questions. The... More
