A great historical lesson can be learned by visiting the Battlefield. A very nice gift shop with very reasonable prices for neat souvenirs. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. The tourist information center is also located at this site.

There are 3 motels in the area, I'm sure one of them has a late checkout. New market battlefield museum though is under renovations. It may not be open.
