Boyds Bear Country
Please Note: Boyds Bear Country Gettysburg Location is Closed as of Early 2011!
The massive Boyds Bear Country is located just south of Gettysburg, PA and makes a nice side trip from the historical sites of Gettysburg.
From the moment you drive up to the big red barn, you will notice bears absolutely everywhere - from the big bear mural on the side of the building to the farmer bear manning a tractor in the field.
Bear lovers will rejoice in the huge selection of bears, staged in whimsical settings, available for purchase. New collections are added twice per year. Some recent visitors have been disappointed that bear inventory has been reduced to make room for home decor products from other companies.
What To See & Do
Fees are charged for each of these activities except Boyds History Hall.
Super Duper Bear Factory - Build your very own Boyd's Bear. You choose the bear type and color of the bean stuffing. Then just stuff your bear, name him/her and pick out an outfit or some accessories.
Teddy Bear Nursery - Visit Boyds Teddy Bear Nursery where you can choose the perfect new addition to your family. Your new baby bear will be wrapped in its own blanket and given an official adoption certificate. There are three different newborn packages from which to choose. They vary in price based on the accessories included in the package. Parents, hold onto your wallets. A visit to the Teddy Bear Nursery can quickly become expensive.
Pups N' Pals Adoption Center - Here you can pick out your favorite Boyds puppy dawg and get to know him/her in the Pooch Pen. After choosing your pup's new leash and collar, get a "clean bill of health" for the pup from Pawla Primper. Afteward, you can visit the Licensing Center to create your pup's Critter License.
Boyds Bear Country Store - Bears, bears and more bears! You can also shop for collectibles and home decor from over 25 vendors.
Boyds History Hall - Currently closed for renovations.
When your hunger becomes "unbearable" (sorry, we couldn't resist!), head downstairs to grab a meal or a snack at the buffet restaurant, Sweetie Pies' Bearkery, Willie B. Bacon's Feed Trough or Boyds Fudge Kitchen.
