My favorite at the moment is Gettysburg National Military Park.  I love all of the history and the scenery is so beautiful.

The view of "Picket's Charge" the third day's battle.  Picket's men started near that red barn and ended up near these Union canons before all was said and done.

View from "Little Round Top", the site of the second day's battle.

These are grave markers at Soldier's National Cemetary from WWI and newer.

These are the grave markers at Soldier's National Cemetary for the Civil War soldiers killed over the 3 days of the Battle of Gettysburg.  They just have numbers on the vast majority of them as they weren't really sure who the person was that was burried there.  The stone closest is number 925, they start at number 1 and go into the thousands.

Soldier's National Cemetary is where Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address in November, 1863.  The Battle of Gettysburg took place July 1-3, 1863.

We go to Caledonia state park often. We also like the lakes at Pine Grove Furnace State Park.

We live near Gettysburg so we visit the sites at the Military Park often, especially Devil's Den and Little Round top.

We love Sizerville State Park, a small state park close to home. When the kids were younger, we would have family camping trips to Pymatuning State Park and then spend a day Presque Isle. Generally, we just love state parks in general.
