Harper's Ferry

04 June 2013

On Memorial Day I went with my father-in-law and brother-in-law to Harper's Ferry in West Virginia. It is a national historic site due to it's role in the prelude to the Civil War.

It's a great place to relax and spend a nice afternoon. You can go to one of the old-fashioned ice cream shops, picnic by one of the rivers (the Shenandoah and Potomac meet here), or hike up a cliffside. On the holiday I was a bit shocked though - I have never seen the park as crowded as it was on Memorial Day. It's nice though to see people out and enjoying the national parks! The museums we visited weren't very crowded. Mostly people seemed to be enjoying the ice cream.
