You already know that Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is known for its rich American history. Interesting landmarks, monuments, and markers are scattered throughout the quaint, little town. And of course, there is the historic battlefield that has been declared a National Military Park. Gettysburg also has its fair share of museums, including some you may not expect. On a recent trip to the area, my family and I visited the Civil War Tails at the Homestead Diorama Museum, and I have to tell you, this was one of the most unique museums I have ever encountered!

While you are in Gettysburg, I suggest visiting the Sachs Covered Bridge and dining at the Dobbin House Tavern, the oldest restaurant in the town. We really enjoyed the food and drinks here.
