Adams County (PA) Photo Safari

This is the first of periodic “photo safaris” of places the Blog has visited! I hope you enjoy this vicarious visit to Gettysburg and Adams County, PA!

An historic car show at one of the annuaal Apple Harvest Festivals.

The backyard of the Shriver House Museum.

Many Gettysburg houses still bear the scars of the famous Civil War battle!

Biking or driving through the battlefields offer lovely vistas.

Sachs Covered Bridge is both beautiful and eerie at sunset in the winter.

Halbrendts Winery collaborates with Paint.Local.Social to offer plein air panting to everyone, regardless of talent (even I did it!). This lovely vine-covered slope at the winery is one of the subjects of the plein air painting events.
Sachs Covered Bridge is lovely anytime of the day or year!

Ike Eisenhower raised Angus cattle on his farm in Gettysburg, and was partly responsible for raising the popularity of Angus beef.

Travel the highways and byways of Adams County, and you may run across an elephant statue!
Lovely bearded iris lurk in many Adams County yards!
Adams County, PA is known as the Apple Capital of the World!

A view of South Mountain from the Eisenhower Farm.

Come for the battlefields, but definitely stay for dinner! Tasty fennel and broccolini pizza
can be found at Food101 in downtown Gettysburg!
Tempting fresh fruit and vegetables await you at the farmers market on Lincoln square each Friday and Saturday!

A flight of hard cider at Hauzers Estate Winery and Cidery.

It’s easy to spend an hour checking out all the goodies at Hollabaugh Orchard farmers market!

Mason Dixon Distillery offers a different kind of spirits in downtown Gettysburg!

The round barn is one of the prettiest barns in Adams County, and is being preserved both as a wedding venue
 and as the aptly named Round Barn Market.
An old air pump still hangs on the side of a barn.
Downtown Gettysburg is filled with cool shops,
boutiques, and great places to grab a cup of joe.
Gettysburg and Adams County is filled with lovely bed & breakfast inns that are both picturesque and comfortable.
Bonus: some are even haunted (but not the one pictured above!).
