Experience History from the Top Gettysburg Hotels
Steeped in history and legend, the town of Gettysburg is home to a wealth of attractions and activities.

See Where Lincoln Penned the Gettysburg Address from the Best Gettysburg Hotels
No stay at the best Gettysburg hotels would be complete without a stop at the David Wills House. This historic house was where President Lincoln completed his famous Gettysburg Address, giving the famous speech on November 19, 1863. The house has been restored to its original condition and now serves as a museum dedicated to Lincoln's stay there and the aftermath of the battle. Visitors can see period furniture, artifacts, and even pieces of fabric used in Lincoln's suit during his speech.
Be sure to take a tour through the Gettysburg National Military Park. Perched on the very field where the battle took place, you’ll see monuments scattered throughout the grounds, which pay homage to the Confederate and Union armies, as well as state markers and sculptures of Lieutenants and Generals. There are also 400 cannons on site and other artillery. The park stretches over 6,000 acres and houses several museums and visitor centers dedicated to preserving its legacy. Visitors can explore interactive exhibits, view artifacts from battle sites, and even tour reenactment camps from both sides of the conflict.
Pay Your Respects to the Fallen from Hotels in Gettysburg
The Gettysburg National Cemetery is one of the most moving sites you'll find within the town's borders—and across America itself. It's here that President Lincoln gave his iconic address at the dedication ceremony for Soldiers' National Cemetery. The grounds also contain thousands of graves for Union soldiers who died in battle here—a sobering reminder of one of America's darkest chapters. Plan on spending at least an hour or two exploring this incredible place once owned by George McClellan before it became hallowed ground for fallen soldiers from both sides of the war.
Other points of interest include the Jennie Wade House (the only civilian home struck by gunfire during the battle) and Seminary Ridge Historic District. The district includes the Shriver House Museum and Schmucker Hall, where Abraham Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address in 1863. You can also check out Eisenhower National Historic Site. The hotels in Gettysburg provide close proximity to all the town has to offer, from outdoor recreation to historical tours.
