Probably the most famous American battlefield, Gettysburg marked the turning point in the Civil War. Later, President Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address here. Dogs are allowed to visit the outside portions of the battlefield on leash. They are not allowed into buildings or the cemetery. The battlefield consists of Auto Touring, walking and you can get tapes or CDs to guide you on your tour.

    Self-guided audio car tour

    Dogs aren't allowed in the visitor center, but we got out of the hot car and waited in the shade of the bookstore entrance side while we took turns inside. You'd have to ask if they're allowed at the outdoor patio with umbrella-covered tables outside the saloon. This picture was taken at the separate bathroom rest stop on the self-guided, car audio tour.

    Lots of choices

    Lots of different kinds of places for walks. We had a pleasant little hike on Culp's Hill.

    Historical Adventure!

    This was a great trip! You can take your dog along! Just no cemeteries or inside the buildings. Everyone was very sweet to my dog. There were a lot of people on Memorial Day so I was glad that my dog handled crowds of hands petting him so well. Definitely NOT a place for unfriendly dogs.

    Wonderful sight seeing

    I took my Shepherd (Canine Good Citizen and Therapy certified) to the parks and took some of the most gorgeous pictures, to date, of him. People were friendly and receptive towards his friendly attitude. The park is NOT a good place to take an unsocialized dog because people naturally approach you and want to pet your dog. GREAT hiking, wonderful trails.
