7 Days holiday - stay in Lancaster and/or Gettysburg?

We will be in Lancaster in October and wish to also visit Gettysburg. Should we stay in Lancaster the whole time or stay a couple of nights in Gettysburg? We understand Gettysburg is only about 1 1/2 hrs drive from Lancaster. Thanks in advance for any advice.

If you are going to visit Gettysburg for more than one day, I would recommend staying in Gettysburg. Making a 3 hour round trip every day you visit Gettysburg would cut into the time you have to spend touring the Gettysburg area.

Thankyou FlyEagle...I guess what we need to know is how much there is to see in Gettysburg other than the Military Museum & Park, etc. (which we are very much looking forward to visiting). Could you see 'what you need to see' in Gettysburg in a day trip from Lancaster (albeit it would be a long day)? Thanks again.

Have just read the following post which answers most of our questions - tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g60798-i335-k42890…

It sounds as if at least an overnight stay is needed? So little time and so much to see and do!!!! Thanks again.
