Your guide to what’s coming up in Gettysburg, the most famous small town in America – and the South Mountain Region

Welcome to the South Mountain region, the perfect getaway destination for all: nature-lovers, art-enthusiasts, history buffs, foodies, sommelier-wannabes, and so much more! Plus, the region is home to America’s most famous small town, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

This 70-mile stretch is a little-known extension of the Blue Ridge Mountain range that covers parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia, with the Appalachian Trail running through it. Here you will not only find beautiful hiking trails and sparkling lakes, but local wineries and breweries, historical monuments and museums, unique festivals and fairs, ghost tours and horse-drawn carriage rides, and some of the country’s best apples and fall foliage. The South Mountain region is a cradle of rich history and experiences connecting visitors to its unique story.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get out of the city and remember what it feels like to discover again! Discover South Mountain. Discover Gettysburg.
