Overnight stay between Philadelphia and Gettysburg


Can anyone recommend a good place to stop overnight between Philadelphia and Gettysburg? We would like to visit places along the way so which route would be the most interesting? Also which route would be the best to Gettysburg? Interested in civil war history

Thank you

Lancaster County is the perfect place to stay between Philadelphia and Gettysburg. You can follow Rt. 30 West, which goes right through the center of Lancaster County, and continues right into Gettysburg. It's about a 90 minute drive from Philadelphia to Lancaster County, and then about 90 minutes further to Gettysburg. You can find great B&Bs on TripAdvisor, as Lancaster County has one of the largest selections of B&Bs in the country! Lancaster County is best known for the oldest Amish community in America, with loads of Amish related activities. Lancaster is also the oldest inland city in America, with many fascinating historical sites. Have a great trip!
