Here's the deal, Gettysburg really is a year-round town that offers far more than history-related events and activities. It's busy season is during the warm months, but there are still many reasons for you to come from September-April. Here are a few examples of what the Gettysburg Area has to offer.
BOOZE!! Wineries, Brewpubs and Distilleries
They're all the rage nowadays. It seems everywhere you turn there's a new brewery or distillery popping up and people flock to them in droves. The Gettysburg Area boasts of several breweries, wineries and distilleries. Many offer a fine selection of food along with their respective libation. A visitor can literally fill a whole weekend on a food/booze tour of Gettysburg and the surrounding areas.
Every season has its music. Every season has its occasions. Every occasion's event has its live music in the Gettysburg Area. From historical brass bands to Christmas Tubas, from blues and rock to Bluegrass, there's something for almost every music fan out there.
Ghost tours have been very popular, especially in historic towns like Gettysburg, for quite a number of years. Some even lament that more people seem to be coming here for the ghost tours more than the history. Whatever your reason for coming here, Gettysburg has many ghost tours to choose from each night of your stay (and probably longer). While none are allowed on the National Park, they all have access to the streets and alleys of town and some even own bonfaide haunted houses that you can investigate. October is a great month for ghost touring and paranormal investigating here in Gettysburg. Ask us about which haunted B&B to stay in .
There is such a thriving art scene here in Gettysburg. Between musicians, photographers, painters and galleries, there is a rich environment for artists and art fans alike.
