Avoid Gettysburg like the plague on the 4th of July weekend. That town is literally gridlocked for those four or five days. I worked there for 18 months - actually, the job was in Hunterstown, just a mile or so east of Gettysburg. Everyone on the project was made aware by the locals to avoid downtown during the holiday. Just too damn many people. Oh, and I'd also recommend a beach town because Gettysburg is kind of like Ground Hog Day. The first day or two are cool... everything is new and quaint and old and historic and whatnot... but then all of the different parts - the shops, the battlefields, the cannons, the flags, the horses, the buggies, the bad food, the Pennsylvania Dutch - all begin to meld into one massive nightmare until you find yourself in an inescapbable cage, surrounded by self-proclaimed-"high-society" inbreds and history fanatics alike, all shoving their small-minded thoughts, big attitudes and differing opinions of who's really buried in Grant's tomb upon you, beating you mentally senseless, stripping you of worldly awareness until you either realize it's happening and bolt for the better life of the modern city, or become entangled in it all and find yourself 10 years later preaching the story of Little Bighorn to anyone willing to listen during the day and banging your cousins and sisters at night.thelazyone said:I'm taking off the week of July 4th. I'm either going to go to a beach town in Delaware or check out Gettysburgh.
