We were recently in Gettysburg on a bus tour. We stayed at the historic Gettysburg hotel in downtown Gettysburg. The Wills House was closed when we got there that afternoon and closed when we left the next morning. We got some pics though, it's pretty awesome to imagine Abraham Lincoln staying there, and to imagine we spent the night across... 更多
When we first arrived we were met by a very nice staff member who was very knowledgeable and friendly.

The price was very competitive with just about everywhere else around. (If I remember correctly it was... 更多

This is a good spot to stop in and get some history without spending too much time. It's part of the National Park System and they have a Passport Stamp
We enjoy touring homes that have the atmosphere and decor of the time period they represent. This building is a museum with one bedroom depicting where Lincoln might have slept and the remaining rooms being glass cases of memorabilia.
