I was in Gettysburg about 12 yrs ago and we stopped and saw a miniature of the battlefield that explained the whole battle. It really helped me to understand where I was as we went on tours and I;d like to see it again when we get out there this summer.. Is it still there? I think it was on the road on the way to the battlefield visitors center and gift shop. Thanks!
Will we be allowed to stop for a picnic while doing a self guided tour of the gettysburg battlefield? Are there covered pavilions with picnic tables? Are there any playgrounds for toddlers along the route?
They brought us to a "farmhouse" that was supposedly a field hospital during the battle of culps hill (right off Baltimore tpke) doing some research it's not listed anywhere. So just curious if we've been had lol
I have read that each state that participated has a memorial in Gettysburg. Is this true?
I particularly am interested in the Missouri monument.
Were going to Gettysburg end of July. Where is a cute B&B to stay? We will be going on Segway tour of the Battlefield and also going to Museum. Gettysburg Brewery at night. What do any of you suggest? Thanks.
Please someone end my misery of unaccomplished searching of where to stay in Gettysburg. I want to know what place has the most paranormal activity,is it Lightner bed and Breakfast, Doubleday Inn,Cashtown Inn,or the Baladerry Inn with Suzanne's "wonderful 3 course breakfasts" . I want to know where you out there,have had yourselves some paranormal activity.
These are my 4 final choices. Please do not mention Farnsworth.I will not ever stay there. Thank you.
My family took a trip to Gettysburg last summer and LOVED it!! I took a ton of pics of monuments and such and some of the placards that the NPS put up explaining certain things, like the Breatsworks and the Valley of Death. But now that I am getting to scrap booking the photos I have found that some of the edges of writing were cut off. Anyone know of a website that has pics of these maybe so I can include all the writing in my scrapbooking? Thanx a Ton!!
I am bringing a group of about 40 people into town and I need a place to eat where they can hold all of us at once. Any ideas?
My husband recently expressed a desire to visit Gettysburg again (we haven't been in a long while, and then just on a day trip). I thought it might be fun to visit over the Valentine's Day weekend, which is also the weekend of his birthday.
Is this going to be a good time to visit? I don't know if Gettysburg is considered a particularly romantic getaway, but one never knows. Should I anticipate crowds or anything out of the ordinary? I know it'll be cold and I'm prepared for that. Can anyone recommend a quiet hotel that's convenient to the battlefield, and is there a particular place to eat that would also be quiet but romantic and/or historic? Any other tips would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help and advice!
When Was it built and DID they move the house Jenny Wade was shot in to build it?
Where does one go for a carriage ride in Gettysburg?
Im planning on taking my sons to Gettysburg for a little get a way over the Labor Day weekend. One of my sons is a huge Civil War History buff!
I wonder if anyone can tell me a litle about Gettysburg! - How far is it from Hershey? What's a good place to stay? And what are the best places we must see? Is it mostly bike friendly?
don't suppose anyone's driving to Washington DC on Friday afternoon/early evening? for me and my 15 year old daughter? Public transport seems to be a nightmare! Fiona-from-England
Im moving to Biglersville for work. I was hoping to find out how to get ahold of a farmer who has renovated barns/garage for boarders. We do this at my farm back in NW Pa and I know many farmers that do it as well. I dont want to live in the tradition apartment, preferring to spend most of my time outdoors. Renting an apartment on a farm is perfect for me. Anybody know who to contact?
Is going during MLK long weekend a bad idea? Is most evrything closed? Or is it not so bad an idea as it will be less crowded? Does anyone know how to find list of what is open?
Thanks in advance
Can someone please give me detailed directions to the SACHS COVERED BRIDGE from the Abbottstown Square?
I'm planning to work in Gettysburg this summer (June 1-September 30, to be exact), however, I haven't found a place to live yet. I tried searching for apartments to rent online, but so far nothing comes up and I'm not sure I'll be able to find anything. Two other students will be arriving shortly after me, so we would like to rent an apartment or probably a small house together.
Any information on who directly I could contact or where I could look for an apartment/house would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Thinking of visiting in early July; first time since childhood for me, first time ever for my husband and 11-year-old daughter. Too crowded, or the best time to be there?
