Gettysburg National M
While many National Parks offer a unique way to become closer to nature through hikes, camping, and other various outdoor activities, the Gettysburg National Military Park provides something different. The park, which was a farming community until that fateful day, is the site of the Battle of Gettysburg. Visiting this park allows you to walk along the battlegrounds, view the gravesites, and have a better understanding of what took place during the battle. You can choose to walk the park alone, or ask for a ranger to give you a tour, as well as provide you with some of history's most fascinating information.
