Harpers Ferry is an ideal destination to get away from it all. From outdoor activities like tube riding or hiking through scenic areas, there's plenty here that will suit your interests!
Harpers Ferry is a historic town located at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers.
The town was the site of John Brown's raid on Harper’s Ferry which sparked off armed conflicts between slavery supporters and anti-slavery troops.
