Gettysburg — 1 night
Located near the memorial park marking the site of one of the largest Civil War battles, the town of Gettysburg sits in a landscape of rolling green hills with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.Kick off your visit on the 14th (Fri): pause for some photo ops at Virginia Memorial, pause for some photo ops at North Carolina Monument, then appreciate the history behind High Water Mark of the Rebellion Monument, and finally pause for some photo ops at State of Pennsylvania Monument. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the history behind National Shrine Grotto of Lourdes, take in the spiritual surroundings of National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, appreciate the history behind 12th & 44th New York Infantry Monument, then pause for some photo ops at The Eternal Light Peace Memorial, and finally look for gifts at Lark Gifts.
