Gettysburg for Valentine's Day?

by mrsmig

My husband recently expressed a desire to visit Gettysburg again (we haven't been in a long while, and then just on a day trip). I thought it might be fun to visit over the Valentine's Day weekend, which is also the weekend of his birthday.

Is this going to be a good time to visit? I don't know if Gettysburg is considered a particularly romantic getaway, but one never knows. Should I anticipate crowds or anything out of the ordinary? I know it'll be cold and I'm prepared for that. Can anyone recommend a quiet hotel that's convenient to the battlefield, and is there a particular place to eat that would also be quiet but romantic and/or historic? Any other tips would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help and advice!

You could also consider the Charlottesville, Virginia area. It would seem a bit more romantic to me. You have the Civil War history of the area, plus Monticello, and Ash Lawn. For a rather unique meal, you might wish to visit the Michie Tavern, which serves a "colonial era" meal. The southern end of the Skyline Drive, through the Shenandoah National Park, is also nearby, though it may have some closures at that time of year. Gary

Obviously Paris (France not Texas) would be a sure bet on romance for Valentine's day. But Gettysburg could be a good getaway none the less. I don't know if the train is running in winter but that could be an interesting thing to do. Finding an old inn right off of the square for a couple of nights would be romantic. Plus there are loads of things to see in town aside from the battle field. I would say yes give it a try. Your not a far drive away.

There are many fantastic places in Gettysburg to visit during Valentines day. For a nice romantic meal there is the Herrs Tavern or J's At the Village. J's has a special menu for Valentines Day weekend. There are many good bed and breakfasts as well, for example Red Brick B&B is right on Baltimore Street. There are also special "valentines day" ghost tours available through GhostlyImages.Net. I hope this was helpful!

Travel Tips for Gettysburg

Ways to Tour Gettysburg

by AlbuqRay

There are at least two ways to tour Gettysburg on your own. The intersection of Baltimore Street (Hwy-97) and Steinwehr Avenue (US-15) is not downtown but it is the center of a tourist area. If you stay in a hotel or B&B near this intersection you can walk to many attractions, including the Soldiers' National Cemetery and Annex, the Ginnie Wade House, the Soldiers' Museum, the Hall of Presidents, the American Civil War Museum (former Wax Museum) and the Lincoln Train Museum. The area is also one end of the Gettysburg Historic Walking Tour that has wayside markers downtown around Lincoln Square and along both sides of Baltimore Street until it reaches Steinwehr Avenue. The three travelogues describe what you can see while walking in these places.

Another way to tour on your own is to do the self-guided auto tour of the battlefield which has stops northwest and south of downtown (including the above-mentioned area). Get a brochure at the new visitors' center or there is an online PDF brochure. You may want to try the View Map button (which has zoom capability). There are three maps in the brochure: an annotated self-guided driving tour of the whole battlefield, a map of the area around the Soldiers' National Cemetery, and a Battle at a Glance map of all three days. The auto tour covers 24 miles and has 16 major stops; however, there are literally hundreds of other interesting places and memorials to see along the way.

Parking

by Wanderer001

Just like in any other city on street parking is a premium. If it is not hunting for a spot it is looking for change to feed the meters.

To avoid this I would suggest finding a place to park and walk around town instead it will save you a little money and a lot of aggravation.

There is a parking lot between the Gettysburg Battlefield Bus Tours and the Jennie Wade house on Baltimore St., it's a large lot and it's free.

From someone who knows....

by kthlngogreek

Please, unless you want to sound like some hick from the mountain, please please please pronounce Gettysburg "geteesburg". Saying "Gettisburg" will just get you laughed at. And yes, we say "all" meaning "all gone". But ive lived in Gettysburg all my life and have never heard someone say "onced". PA Dutch is spoken in Lancaster and surrounding areas. Take it from a local.

History Beyond the Park's Gates

by ckeller

Within a few country miles of Gettysburg lie the towns of Fairfield, Cashtown & Orrtanna, in their own right rich in history & offering some of the best fresh farm goods Adams County has to offer. A visit to the Round Barn and the Adams County Winery are a must!

Avoid the Crowds

by corcatk

Gettysburg gets very crowded during the summer months and the traffic through the Battlefield can be terrible with limited parking.

If you visit in Winter you will be guaranteed to have the Battlefield to pretty much to yourself. It is quite a pretty area in Winter, although it can get very cold. It is a very peaceful time to visit. Of course there aren't any Park Programs going on in the Winter and some places close earlier, but you will get cheaper hotel rates and have no parking problems.
