"Hike with Ike" Walking Tours of Gettysburg

December 6, 2021

The Eisenhower National Historic Site announced two special “Hike with Ike” walking tours of downtown Gettysburg this December. Visitors to Gettysburg have the opportunity to join a park ranger for walking tours to explore Gettysburg as Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower knew it.

With the backdrop of Gettysburg at Christmastime, these programs will explore stories from numerous chapters of Ike and Mamie’s lives in historic Gettysburg. The holiday decorations throughout the town will provide a festive atmosphere for this popular program.
