  • 2. Boyds Bears and Wares

    The world's most Humongus Teddy Bear Store Evah!!! Even if you aren't a Boyds collector just seeing this beautiful barn full of bears and wares is a treat for the entire family. Entertainment on weekends, and plenty of places for people to sit in the lobby and take a break. Fantastic, reasonably priced restaurant with a wonderful view. Small museum. And, it is all free unless you want to take home some great souvenirs.

  • 3. Gettysburg Battlefield National Park

    The small town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania was the site of the largest battle ever waged during the American Civil War. Fought in the first three days of July 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg resulted in a hallmark victory for the Union "Army of the Potomac" and successfully ended the second invasion of the North by General Robert E. Lee's "Army of Northern Virginia". Historians have referred to the battle as a major turning point in the war, the "High Water Mark of the Confederacy". It was also the bloodiest single battle of the war, resulting in over 51,000 soldiers killed, wounded, captured or missing.

    There is no charge to tour the battlefield, but we recommend you purchase or rent a battlefield tour CD or tape and do your own private tour. There are also bus tours which are very informative narrated tours and are at a very reasonable cost.
