I'm planning a trip to the east coast of the USA in October this year. I'd like to do a day trip to Gettysburg, if possible.
From what the research I've done so far, it looks like the easiest way to get to Gettysburg without a car, is to take a coach trip from Washington DC. However, it appears that all the coach companies only do these tours on Thursdays, and at this stage, it's looking like we may not be in DC on a Thursday.
I'll also be spending a few days in Philadelphia, but can't seem to find any companies that do day tours to Gettysburg from Philadelphia.
Another option I've heard about, is to catch an Amway train from New York to Harrisburg, PA, then catch a bus from Harrisburg to Gettysburg. Is this a viable option? Or is there another way of getting to Gettysburg from either DC, Philadelphia, or NYC, that anyone can recommend?
