The "Wilkum" Preview Video
Another helpful way to "see this area" before you get here
is to preview it on video tape. Now, you can see and experience the atmosphere and attractions of Gettysburg and
the Pennsylvania Dutch Country right in your own home. This video highlights many local attractions and points
of interest, and even includes footage from a battle re-enactment. Order the 50-minute long "Wilkum"
video travel guide (and it's free map & resource guide) and plan your trip here before you even leave home!

Free Self Guided Tours
The Gettysburg CVB also offers free tour brochures and maps for the Scenic Valley
Tour, the Downtown Walking Tour, and the Historic Conewago Tour.
- The Scenic Valley Tour is a 36-mile drive through one of America's most scenic
counties. The entire route is clearly marked with Scenic Valley Tour signs. (Approximate driving time is 2 hours).
- The Downtown Historic District Tour is truly a walk into history. Over 100 buildings
have been restored in a recent Renaissance of restoration.
- The Historic Conewago Tour is named for the Conewago Creek that meanders through
the Eastern half of the county. The 40-mile tour crosses the Conewago Creek at several points. The Historic Conewago
Tour passes by East Cavalry Battlefield, working farms, several country churches, and through the center of Victorian
New Oxford and Early-American East Berlin, as well as several other small villages, and the very scenic Adams County
countryside. (Approximate driving time is 2 hours).
