Explore America’s crossroads, the intersection of Route 30 and Route 11, and beyond when you travel to Chambersburg. Enjoy the area’s unique charm and interesting history from frontier settlements and forts, stops on the Underground Railroad and sites of Civil War raids. Tour many of these sites through the Franklin County Old Jail & Museum, 11/30 Visitors Center and the Chambersburg Heritage Center & Gift Shop.
Woven between the tales of Chambersburg’s history are delightful rolling hills, vast fields, bakeries, farmers markets and so much more. Grab a bite at one of many locally owned cafes and restaurants, or explore the small shops up and down Main Street to find something wonderful and unique – just like Chambersburg.
Your exploration will not be complete until you’ve expanded your adventure to include fun, family-friendly activities. Popular attractions include historical driving tours, hiking, kayaking, fishing, golfing, skiing, scenic drives and more. Remember, we are famous for our peaches – stop in at Shatzer’s Fruit Market in late summer and ask for a Chambersburg peach or a fresh peach slushie! Or enjoy a crisp, juicy apple in the fall at a roadside fruit stand. Over the next few pages you will find an overview of what Chambersburg has to offer; we encourage you to tour and explore it all!
