We saw a ton of attractions during our first trip to D.C. The visit to Gettysburg was at the top of the list, made so by the licensed tour guide (available at the Visitors Center) that we hired to drive us around. For $45, we got two hours of narration from an extremely knowledgable person. As others have mentioned, you could drive all over the park and have no idea what all the monuments (and there are a TON of them) mean. As it was, we ended up with a far greater understanding of the battle and what it meant to the war.
If you pass up Gettysburg, you’ll be kicking yourself, I guarantee it.
