Enjoy a lesson in history coupled with some sightseeing during your visit to Shippen House.
It's in Gettysburg. If you're not familiar with the name, it is 40 miles (64 kilometers) away from the capital of the state, Harrisburg.
Reserving a hotel room close by isn’t too hard, with 2 options from which to choose. The Shippen Place Hotel and Courtyard by Marriott Shippensburg, located within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Shippen House, are well-liked by many visitors.
There's no need to save all year when you stay at a less expensive, yet comfortable hotel. There is a handful that are just a short drive away. Some options are the Super 8 Chambersburg I-81 and the Sleep Inn And Suites.
There's nothing better than wandering around a new place to get your appetite going. After going to Shippen House, you can fill up just a short walk away, at The Harbor. If you'd like something a little more filling, pay a visit to Shippensburg Select Diner, another nearby option. For those that love finishing up the day with a relaxed beer or wine just down the street, the barkeep at Knute's Pub & Grill will be serving up drinks all night.
