Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Small though it is, Harpers Ferry is quite interesting and provides an all day adventure for the family. The small town of Harpers Ferry has interesting shops, reasonably priced places to eat with good “down home food”, and a plethora of interesting history to learn and things to do. Put your walking shoes on for this fun filled day trip.

Certain times of the year there are nightly ghost tours. They are well priced and while we didn’t see any ghosts on our tour, we did learn a great deal about the history of the area. The tour guide was dressed in period clothing and was very well versed on Harpers Ferry and it’s violent past. I have included some links below to the history of Harpers Ferry as well as the ghost stories involved. I hope you take a “daycation” to visit this picturesque town and enjoy the history of West Virginia.
