Ummmm, isn’t this why many folks visit? Great beginning to understanding the Battle at Gettysburg. The museum puts it all into perspective. The film and cyclorama are a must for first timers! Us old timers enjoy it, too. (Especially the gift shop.)

Relatively close to your rental. It’s a wonderful place to walk to after you’ve parked your car at Confederate Ave. This is also a sight where horseback tours begin (run by the Park). You’ll probably see a group or two of riders.

Get the Apple cider donuts!!! They didn’t appeal to me when I first heard about these donuts. But, the warm sugar donuts were simply the best. Fun place to hang out on deck, or grounds, possibly watch a club with their diving dogs.

Great wings and burgers, fries and salads. Carry out available as well as dining in and a few outdoor tables - during the week, should be easier to get outside seating (limited right now).

Make a left when exiting house (walking or driving-driving is safer). Make first right (Reynolds Ave.) You are now on day 1 of battlefield. It’s a great stroll (or drive) to watch sunsets and see wildlife. However, the grass and fields are loaded with tics. Check yourself and your dog if you walk through any of the battlefields.
