After the tour we will check into our accommodations at the Courtyard by Marriott (717-334-5600) which is located just outside of the town center.

A buffet breakfast is included at the hotel this morning. First, we will visit the Eisenhower National Historic Site, home and farm of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the farm served the President as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders. With its peaceful setting and view of South Mountain, it was a much needed respite from Washington and a backdrop for efforts to reduce Cold War tensions. Lunch is included today at Hickory Bridge Farm. Dive into a delicious family-style lunch of Chicken and Biscuits and Baked Ham as well as salad, fruit, potatoes, vegetables, corn fritters and dessert. During lunch we will visit with and enjoy stories by "Mamie Eisenhower" as she recalls her first meeting with Ike, the trials and tribulations of marriage, war, politics, the presidency and their life together in Gettysburg. This afternoon we will get an in-depth look at what it means to be a fruit grower in the 21st century at Hollabaugh Brothers Fruit Farm & Market. Visit the bee room and learn how different species of bees do different kinds of pollination before taking a covered wagon tour of the farm with a stop to pick apples. Sample cider and donuts as well before our departure. Home to the only Historic Gettysburg collection of wines, Adams County Winery is a small farm winery located in a 19th century bank barn. Enjoy a tour and tasting before returning to the hotel to relax and freshen up before dinner. Dinner is included tonight at the historic Fairfield Inn; our dinner from The South. After the Battle of Gettysburg, on July 4, 1863, General Robert E. Lee and his soldiers stopped to dine here. During dinner, "General & Mrs. Lee" will entertain you with stories from the 19th century and the Civil War.
