As many of us know, planning a vacation is no easy task. It's a multiple step process that can take days, weeks, months.. Whether you're planning a surprise birthday trip for a loved one, a family reunion, a company outing, or a easy-going day trip, you're more than likely googling for creative, fun ideas!
Here's some reasons to consider Harpers Ferry, WV for your next vacation:

Metro region as well as northern Virginia. This makes it easy for those
living nearby to plan a day trip close to home. Not from the area? If
you ask us, that's even more reason to visit. Harpers Ferry is a
historic area that offers a glance at the past with amazingly modern
activities to participate in during your stay. Not wanting to drive? Why not take the train?
