    Absolute must stop in order to see Gettysburg. Check in with the foundation to see how to best see sites. Driving tour is a must. Museum is worth the entrance price check all of it out.

    The visitor center movie and cyclorama are awesome. Gives you good start for your auto self guided tour. So much to see throughout the battlefield.

    Breathtaking site of the most important battle of the Civil War. Spring for the guided tour, it's well worth it and puts everything together since it can overwhelming.

    This place is so amazing. It's an emotional experience to stand on Little Round Top and think about all that happened in this small town. Don't pass up any opportunity to go there.

    Free of charge, explore historical battlefields, Soldier’s National Cemetery and the David Wills House, where President Lincoln put the finishing touches on the Gettysburg Address.

    Gorgeous new space for the Visitor Center but don't eat here - it was $6 for a very tiny fountain soda and glass of water. Food is wayyy over priced.

    A great place to learn about the Battle of Gettysburg and the significant role it had on the Civil War. I recommend the mini documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman and the Cyclorama-truly beautiful.

    Gettysburg is one of my all time favorite places to visit. It's a great American Memorial to all that lost their lives here, North or South. Everyone should read about the Civil War and visit here.

    After exploring inside, have a seat with the 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, read the Gettysburg Address on the nearby rock, and absorb the history that happened here July 1st through 3rd in 1863.

    The personal battlefield driver/tour guide is MORE than worth it. But, make sure that you have plenty of gas.

    Definitely spend the few dollars to see the movie narrated by Morgan Freeman and the original 1884 Cyclorama. They are both amazing.

    The auto tour is great! Buy CD package to play as you drive in the gift shop (the one by Jake Boritt costs a little more but it's definitely worth it).

    Pick up the driving tour audio cd at the counter in bookstore. Grab the map from the info desk and hit the road. Allows you to drive and visit at your pace and get some stories along the way.
