Visitors Learn about a Historic Bygone Era & the Ghost Lore Surrounding it in Gettysburg Pennsylvania
by The Traveler

Most well known for its Civil War Battlefields, Gettysburg offers educational fun for the entire family. In a place where history and culture come alive, visitors will find themselves part of a live reenactment, marveling at the monuments that pay tribute to our nation’s ancestors, and wanting to know more about this historical bygone era.

Situated in the southern part of Pennsylvania, within an easy drive from Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and most of Pennsylvania, as well as parts of West Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware, Gettysburg is a popular year-round vacation destination. A tourist favorite is the Gettysburg National Military Park where the significance of this city’s turn of events becomes very real and U.S. National Park Service Rangers offer guided tours. Other popular attractions include the Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours, a myriad of historic museums, and unique traveler experiences in nearby towns. In Lancaster, visitors can experience Amish life and in Hershey, guests can marvel at the United States’ most renowned chocolate town and make memories in the world-famous Hershey Park.
