We thought we would be stopping in at Gettysburg for a few hours to see the town, etc. Were we ever wrong, and thankfully so. When coming into the town we stopped at the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Centre and took a bus tour within an hour, out to the battlefields. Our guide, Ed Guy, was phenomenal. He's been a guide for 29 years and it's evident he loves his job and the history surrounding the town. He has the ability to tell the stories as if it's the first time he's told them and you can't help but get drawn up in all the history. If you didn't know a lot about Gettysburg before arriving, you will certainly be intrigued and well informed by the time you leave the town. This museum is a must-see for visitors to Gettysburg, take in all it has to offer; the cyclorama tour is outstanding.
There is a huge cafeteria in the visitor centre with a great choice of foods, Our overall experience was very impressive.
