We just got back from Gettysburg, and it was an excellent day to tour.
We hired a guide to take my wife and I in my car, and it was money well spent.You can't get a more personalized tour with a knowledgeable guide that can answer questions (a tape can't).
The new visitors center is very nice, and although there is much less on exhibit, it is laid out much better. I would have liked to see them use non-reflective glass on the displays. It is hard enough with the low light conditions (understandable), but the reflections are a killer. Someone missed the boat on that one.
It seems like display area was given up for meeting rooms and other things.
For a bad end to the day, I can thank your town government.
After popping quarters in meters all day, and spending money around the community, we went to the Gman's for dinner. I went a block past, and down an empty side street with meters.
Figuring that since it was after 5 o'clock, I didn't need to pay the meter (stupid me).
Well, they must hide and wait for out of towners, because I came out to find a $15-$20 ticket!
$15 if you paid now...but only check or money order. Guess what? you got your greedy little hands on cash. I don't carry checks on me, and I'm not searching for a money order.
I wouldn't have even minded if it was five bucks...like most towns...but you know you can rake in the money from us visitors. Thanks for the welcome.
The locals told me they will tag you at 2 A.M.
A real classLESS act.
