Devils Den
#3 of 51 Sights & Landmarks in Gettysburg
Excellent views looking up to Little Round Top for the adults, and a "must do" stop for everyone with kids to run, climb, and otherwise burn off some energy.
Also while in Gettysburg hopefully you can find Devil's Den to explore an hike up to the top for a great view .While standing atop of Devil's Den you can look across an see little round top in a distance.

Eisenhower National Historic Site
#9 of 51 Sights & Landmarks in Gettysburg
My favorite memory is walking from the house to the far barn, knowing that Ike and his visiting dignitaries made the same walk and enjoyed the same views of the lovely rolling Pennsylvania farmland.
I would definitely recommend visiting this site, as it provides a bit of history that is beyond the standard Battlefield history you receive on many of the other tours in the area.

Built in 1854, while some come to Sachs Covered Bridge to exploit historical fiction about the ghostly presence of Civil War soldiers, those who love & wish to preserve this landmark (one of over 212 historically...
There are paths that follow the stream back into the woods where you can take a relaxing walk, but the bridge alone is a site worth seeing.

It will take you a bit of stamina to climb all the stairs, but you will be rewarded by a great view helped by informative panels.
