400 Years Of History On One Tank Of Gas


Fill the tank and visit nine Presidential homes, great wineries, 13 National Parks, the country's largest collection of Civil War sites, then shop, dine and stay in one (or more) of 16 historic Main Street communities, plus hike, bike and explore scenic rivers, roads and landscapes.

That's what you can do on Journey Through Hallowed Ground, a 175-mile corridor that runs from Gettysburg, Pa., to Monticello in Charlottesville, Va. This region, known as Where America Happened™, holds more American history than any other region and can be seen in its entirety on just one tank of gas.

As the summer comes to a close, and the fall foliage begins to lure travelers out for a long-awaited scenic drive, why not Take the Journey™ and enjoy some of the nation's most picturesque landscapes along the rolling Piedmont and the Blue Ridge Mountains-and learn about the 400 years of history that happened in this remarkable region. And while traveling, get to know what Thomas Jefferson, the town of Gettysburg, Iroquois Indians and a perfectly aged barrel of Virginia grapes have in common.

Now, more than ever, travelers are looking for a destination that packs excitement, adventure and a real "bang for the bucks." Are you a nature lover? Are you interested in visiting heritage sites and small towns? Are you traveling with family and looking for something that the kids - and their parents - will enjoy? Or maybe you'd like to attend some of the region's most exciting events, including the Waterford Fair in Waterford, VA, the Gettysburg Festival in Gettysburg, PA, or one of the many upcoming events at historic sites, parks, wineries and in communities across the Hallowed Ground region. The Journey has it all.
