If you want to feel the real magic of Gettysburg, come at the end of June or the beginning of July for firefly season. As the sun sets, the seas of rich grass start to sparkle, first a few twinkles, and then as those twinkles are answered by distant firefly friends, the twinkles start to rise into the air and climb into the trees. As darkness falls, the Battlefield and for us, the grounds of Battlefield Bed & Breakfast, come alive as the trees turn into lighted fantasies of magic lights.
Our 30 acres are preserved as a wildlife habitat. We haven’t used any kinds of toxic sprays on our land for 25 years. The fireflies are a wonderful and wild expression of the best of Mother Nature. Come enjoy!
