    • Anyone know of cabins, not expensive

      Pocono Manor Jan 6, 2017 at 9:21 AM

      Hey I was wondering if anyone knows of any cabin rentals in the Poconos or near. I'm not looking to go skiing, just horseback riding and just want that country feel! I've never been there but only live about an hour and half away. I just keep getting sponsored places when searching.. And nothing seems suitable

    • Re: Gettysburg Pennsylvania USA - Diorama (sp?) Is it still there?

      by Marti0013 Online Now Jun 23, 2015 at 1:40 AM

      I was in Gettysburg about 12 yrs ago and we stopped and saw a miniature of the battlefield that explained the whole battle. It really helped me to understand where I was as we went on tours and I;d like to see it again when we get out there this summer.. Is it still there? I think it was on the road on the way to the battlefield visitors center and gift shop. Thanks!

      Will we be allowed to stop for a picnic while doing a self guided tour of the gettysburg battlefield? Are there covered pavilions with picnic tables? Are there any playgrounds for toddlers along the route?

    • State Memorials

      by Heartlandtourist Online Now Jul 26, 2013 at 9:36 AM

      I have read that each state that participated has a memorial in Gettysburg. Is this true?
      I particularly am interested in the Missouri monument.

    • monument markers

      by rena1278 Online Now Jun 15, 2010 at 9:37 PM

      My family took a trip to Gettysburg last summer and LOVED it!! I took a ton of pics of monuments and such and some of the placards that the NPS put up explaining certain things, like the Breatsworks and the Valley of Death. But now that I am getting to scrap booking the photos I have found that some of the edges of writing were cut off. Anyone know of a website that has pics of these maybe so I can include all the writing in my scrapbooking? Thanx a Ton!!

      Gettysburg for Valentine's Day?

      by mrsmig Online Now Jan 12, 2009 at 8:23 AM

      My husband recently expressed a desire to visit Gettysburg again (we haven't been in a long while, and then just on a day trip). I thought it might be fun to visit over the Valentine's Day weekend, which is also the weekend of his birthday.

      Is this going to be a good time to visit? I don't know if Gettysburg is considered a particularly romantic getaway, but one never knows. Should I anticipate crowds or anything out of the ordinary? I know it'll be cold and I'm prepared for that. Can anyone recommend a quiet hotel that's convenient to the battlefield, and is there a particular place to eat that would also be quiet but romantic and/or historic? Any other tips would be appreciated.

      Thanks for your help and advice!

      by tjd180 Online Now Feb 27, 2007 at 5:38 PM

      Im moving to Biglersville for work. I was hoping to find out how to get ahold of a farmer who has renovated barns/garage for boarders. We do this at my farm back in NW Pa and I know many farmers that do it as well. I dont want to live in the tradition apartment, preferring to spend most of my time outdoors. Renting an apartment on a farm is perfect for me. Anybody know who to contact?

      I'm planning to work in Gettysburg this summer (June 1-September 30, to be exact), however, I haven't found a place to live yet. I tried searching for apartments to rent online, but so far nothing comes up and I'm not sure I'll be able to find anything. Two other students will be arriving shortly after me, so we would like to rent an apartment or probably a small house together.

      Any information on who directly I could contact or where I could look for an apartment/house would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks in advance,
