Itinerary

Start your tour with a look around at this retro-inspired candy store. Get some ideas to come back later and buy.
Pretzels were influenced by the Catholic church, since their simple ingredients were allowed during Lent. And we all know about the cheesesteak. Sample both of these Pennsylvania traditions at this bar that hearkens back to the colors of the uniforms of the Union and Confederate armies.
This house is best known as the home where Abraham Lincoln stayed on the eve of giving his famous "Gettysburg Address".
Established in 1797, this hotel has become known as one of the most luxurious in the region, and even President Dwight D. Eisenhower stayed here while recovering from a heart attack, making it his temporary White House.
This company, started in 1996, makes bread in a way that honors European traditions, Sample a local favorite, apple hand pie.
This hotel was turned into a hospital for wounded soldiers during the Battle of Gettysburg, and is considered one of the town's most haunted buildings today.
Pennsylvania is an up-and-coming location for mushroom hunting and foods using wild mushrooms as an ingredient. Sample wild mushroom pizza, using locally sourced mushrooms.
Chocolate has a long history in Pennsylvania, with records of Benjamin Franklin selling chocolates in his print shop in Philadelphia, though the chocolate we know today is much different from what early settlers and colonists would have known.
