This is a no-brainer.

The Hispanic Gangs aren't a problem in Philadelphia, apparently they are in Gettysburg.

So much more history in Philadelphia, AND if you like to gamble, there are several casinos and off-track betting paroles.

Gettysburg DOES NOT have a casino and never will.

Are you mad because you can't gamble in Gettysburg?

You can in Philadelphia.

And there aren't any gangs roving the streets looking to rob tourists.

No I'm not mad that I can't gamble in Gettysburg.
I know I can gamble in Philadelphia, and several other locations in PA too. Hollywood is closer.

Steve I have to agree to an extent. Yes there is a lot of history, not only in Philadelphia but all around the area. They have much to offer both in the city of Philadelphia, but also in the neighboring counties in Pennsylvania, and in New Jersey. Can Gettysburg compete with them? Yes I think so. People from all over the world have heard about the Battle of Gettysburg, but regretfully, few have heard of Independence Hall, Franklin Center, the Betsy Ross House, or Christ Church. I myself enjoy a visit to Philly every few years and see something new every time. Just as I often hear people who visit Gettysburg every year tell me they see something new with every visit, just as I notice something new each time I visit the battlefield and surrounding area.

Did you know Steve we also have a history in our area that goes back to before the American Revolution.

You are also correct, in that Gettysburg doesnít have a casino. And you are also correct Gettysburg never will have one. There just isnít anyplace for a casino IN Gettysburg. But there are many ideal locations in the surrounding townships in Adams County, and I think sometime there will be a casino in Adams County.

Now as to your claim there are no gangs in Philadelphia Please read http://www.pa2012.com/2009/04/gang-violence-i... The lead sentence is ďne of the most serious issues that plagues Philadelphia and the surrounding state is the issue of gang violence.Ē Now true his is a 2009 article, but it clearly identifies it as an issue, and explains why.

Also read http://www.justice.gov/ndic/pubs44/44229/4422... . This report indicates that drugs and gangs are a problem in Philadelphia.

Gambling is just an added benefit that will come to Adams County in time, but isnít all that important, I can and will live with or without one.

Aain please provide some documentation that tourist are being targeted in Gettysburg.

A report from over a year ago which referenced graffiti that could possibly have been related to an Hispanic gang. Since removed and has not reappeared. The rest is just the musings of a moron.

Go start your own thread, buttcrack.

I guarantee you it won't be as informative or popular as mine, though.

Informative? I havenít seen one factual statement from you that indicates people are failing to come to Gettysburg, but have chosen Philly instead. Philly has a lot to offer, as does Gettysburg. I was told you couldnít find a room to stay in Gettysburg this past weekend.

If people are going to other places it could be because they couldnít find anyplace to stay here.
