6 more cool, unsung York/Adams, Pa., sites to discover and explore

This unsung site is hardly off the beaten track, as many often-overlooked places are. But Gettysburg’s square should not be forgotten as a place to spend time on those treasured trips to the Gettysburg National Military Park and other attractions. The visitors center is now farther away from this crossroads, but remember that this part of Gettysburg saw fighting, too. And there are museums, shops linked up to the Civil War and prime restaurants within walking distance. In fact, the must-see National Cemetery, with its Lincoln connections, and nearby Ziegler’s Grove, with its Pickett Charge links, are a reasonable walk from this square, seen here from the roof of the Gettysburg Hotel.
