Wondering how you’re going to spend the Fourth of July and want to find something to do near your Gettysburg new homes? With our nation’s independence day just around the corner, nothing could be more patriotic than spending the day (or weekend) in one of America’s most historically significant towns. This weekend, July 6-8, Gettysburg will host its 149th Annual Reenactment. This is more than just a little gun fight. The annual event literally reconstructs the actual events of the Civil War’s most infamous battle. In addition to live mortar displays and battle recreations, attendees will have a chance to experience food and music from the civil war period, join in on activities for the whole family and even visit a re-created village. What better way to appreciate our nation’s history than to experience it first hand?
Gettysburg is a popular destination for tourists for these reasons, but only those in the know realize that the area is home for people of all ages. An award-winning school district, PGA quality golf courses, the area’s best shopping and an easy commute into nearby Maryland make Gettysburg a gem for anyone looking for small town living near Baltimore, MD, Washington D.C. or even nearby Harrisburg, PA.
Gettysburg builder, S&A Homes, features four communities just a stone’s throw from downtown Gettysburg. Deatrick Village (which will be open all weekend to welcome visitors) features maintenance-free carriage and single family homes with resort style amenities just 2 miles from downtown Gettysburg. Interested in a townhome, or perhaps a maintenance-free condominium? We have communities in the area that offer those too!
