What's Your Gettysburg Passion?
What's not to love? There is something here for everyone. Whether you love civil war history like we do, or not, you will LOVE Gettysburg.
We first visited Gettysburg in May 2007, we have been in love with it ever since.We have been back 7 times since our first visit. We like to come in the spring and over Labor day every year.
We love the living history weekends, it like stepping back in time when you see all the encampments and demonstrations. We love taking the candle lite walking tours at night.We love the quaint little shops and the wonderful little restaurants and ice cream parlors.
But what I personally love the most is taking a step back, finding my favorite place on the battlefield, (which for me is little round top)......and just setting back on a rock and taking in the beauty of the battlefield. Even though so much death and destruction took place here, there is such a peace that resonates at Gettysburg.
A truly WONDERFUL place to visit. We can't wait to come back in 2010.
