The town unofficially began in the late 1700s, when the Getty family set up a tavern that was heavily used by soldiers and traders traveling between Philadelphia and Baltimore. However, Gettysburg is most famous for the Battle of Gettysburg, which took place in 1863. The largest amount of casualties in the entire Civil War occurred here, and many consider it a turning point in the war. President Abraham Lincoln later visited the Gettysburg National Cemetery and delivered the infamous Gettysburg Address, putting the small town on the map. Visible damage can still be seen in some structures around the area.

When to Visit Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

The best time to visit Gettysburg is in the spring or summer, when temperatures are generally sunny and pretty mild out. Pennsylvania can get some frigid winters, so it's best to avoid Gettysburg during that time frame. While it's still possible to go, it's much more enjoyable to see the outdoor tourist attractions when it's not in the middle of a snow storm. On the other side of the spectrum, the summers can be unbearably hot. If spending a majority of time outside seeing the attractions and learning about the history is important, it's best to avoid the summer and winter.

Spring is a beautiful time to visit, as the grass has turned green again and the flowers are blooming. The Reenactor Appreciation Weekend occurs in spring, which can be a treat to see to better visualize how times were back in the 1800s. Gettysburg also has one of the oldest Memorial Day parades in the country, which is special for history lovers to attend. The Apple Blossom Festival occurs in the spring to add a beautiful background to the historic city. Although you can expect some rain, the weather is generally sunny and warm.

Fall is a very scenic time to visit, as the green leaves are starting to turn beautiful shades of red and orange. The throngs of tourists who were on summer break have disappeared, and the weather is starting to cool down from the summer's unbearable heat. There are plenty of events to attend in addition to the usual tourist attractions. Remembrance Day occurs to celebrate Lincoln's Gettysburg Address speech from over a hundred years ago. You can also visit the Eisenhower Farm, the previous getaway of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower, to celebrate World War II Weekend.

"Gettysburg Heritage Center"
Score 4.0 / 5

The group reservation coordinator at Comfort Suites recommended we add the Gettysburg Heritage center to our itinerary. It was well worth the time and modest entrance fee. They focus on the experience of the town during the battle, have some neat displays and a pretty good short film.
