Old Blue and I are visiting from California and wonder if anyone wants to meet up for an exchange. We will be in the Gettysburg area all day Sunday, May 20. I know itโ€™s short notice but if anyoneโ€™s available, let us know.

Well jeeze. What about New York? I have been thinking that us east coast types should hang out. Show 'em how it's done.

I'm driving, doing a long, round about road trip that had been modified to just Texas but is now a lot longer. If I survive I'll wind up in Austin.

Gettysburg - Appalachian Brewing Company
Ronks - Good 'N Plenty, stop by Dutch Haven to pick up a shoofly pie and a letterbox.
Lancaster - Annie Bailey's Irish Public House

Isaac's Restaurant and Deli has great soup and sandwiches with a fun atmosphere. They are a local chain with quite a few locations in York and Lancaster counties. The Isaac's in Hershey has a letterbox.

If you're a fan of breweries, there is an awesome small chain called Iron Hill that we loved when we lived in PA. They are all around Philly/KOP, and they have Lancaster and Hershey locations (Kennet Square mushroom soup omg)

And because I'm incapable of recommending food without mentioning at least one Thai place, Pattaya Thai Cuisine in Philly is super authentic and delicious ;)

King of Prussia Town Center, has some really good choices.
Philly, Johns Roast Pork,14 East Synder Ave. for cheese steaks. Stay away from cheesesteak corner at all costs. Go to Johns trust me.
When are you in the Philly area?

In which general area are you staying in Philly, and what kind of food do you like? We're an amazing culinary city, but I'm not sure if you're looking for a quick take-out or sit-down meal.

For Gettysburg we like Dunlaps, good food and prices, and BYOB.
A little nice is the Pub on the Square. Appalachian Brewing Company has decent beer but their food is hit or miss.

In Hershey the Chocolate Ave Grill is excellent and Funck's in nearby Palmyra has awesome food and a great tap.

You can't go wrong with Loxley's in Lancaster.

Miller's Smorgasbord in Ronks has a great breakfast buffet.

Update: as of last night husband no longere wants to try to haul the trailer that far. so now we are looking for hotels, cabins, airbnb, etc.
Thanks,

Hi all,
We are wanting to take a tour of Gettysburg this summer and are curious about places to camp. We are hoping to bring our 22' trailer. iI will be our first time to take it on a road trip so we are a little nervous.

What are some good places to stay in the area?

Also, any must find boxes?

Anyone from the area?

We will have two days there, and I'm thinking they will all center around the battlefield. But I'm always good for a meetup.

Thanks a bunch!

Welcome to Pennsylvania in advance!

My daughter has a 35' camper and they camp at Artillery Ridge Campground.

There are a LOT of boxes in Gettysburg including many on the battlefield itself. They are very hard to get discretely because the battlefield is ALWAYS busy but if you are willing to take your time, you can get a nice selection. My favorite boxes not on the battlefield are Sunrise Soap Company and Postage Paid. Both of these are in unique stores and although discretion is needed, sneakiness is not. The staff is aware that both are there.

There is so much to do in Gettysburg that boxing may take a back seat!

Thank you. I'll look into the campground.

That's what I'm thinking, but I may need a battle break. ;)
We have a lot more stops on our list after this one!

I don't know about places to camp today, but in '92 I stayed in fields nearby when they filmed parts of the movie "Gettysburg" on location (it's a story for another time..) Unfortunately I hadn't discovered 'boxing back then.

I can recommend taking the self-guided tour, you can do it at your own pace. You can tarry where and as you will, or move along more quickly as the sights (dis)interest you. You might even be able to grab a 'box or a few with planning.

Your Obd't Servant,

Our favorite campground is the Drummer Boy Camping Resort. Beautiful pool and great activities.

I also recommend visiting the Eisenhower National Historic Site. You need to take a shuttle bus there that you pick up at the Gettysburg visitor's center.

Have Fun!

Hubs decided last night he doesn't want to pull the trailer that far yet. So now we're looking at normal lodging like cabins, hotels, airbnb.

I'm not sure we will have time to go to any state parks now. :(
It sounds wonderful.

I think I looked at this one last night right before hubby decided he doesn't want to take the trailer that far....

I'd like to visit Eisenhower HS, but hubby probably won't. Maybe I can leave him to roam the battlefield, and I'll go with the kids. ;)

Thanks!
