                           H A R P E R S   F E R R Y

I never thought in a million years when I got off the train in Harpers Ferry that I'd be rewarded with the best 4th of July I ever had in my lifetime.

This historic town with beautiful scenery certainly knows how to celebrate the 4th of July. You can visit the battlefield, stroll the lovely streets, explore the extraordinary Civil War era buildings, soak in the refreshing Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers by wading or tubing, hike the beautiful Appalachian Trail and so much more.
There's band music performed by the Marines, American flags flying across town and hot dogs grilling. Many of the charming homes date back to the 1800's and are historical treasures.

The Women's Club of Harpers Ferry were ever gracious during the 4th of July. They had an amazing picnic with delicious hot dogs, potato chips, watermelon, and a variety of home-baked cookies. Beverages were also included and this feast of goods on a paper plate only cost one U.S. dollar per person. (The best deal in all of West Virginia if not all of America).  This was a deal that couldn't be beat. Locals and tourists alike gathered around the gazebo to listen to the bandstand perform patriotic music while eating the delicious picnic food.

The whole town felt blissfully happy as they celebrated America's Birthday. I met so many kind people during my short time in Harpers Ferry. I even made a couple of friends. The people of Harpers Ferry certainly know how to put on a spectacular 4th of July and I thank them for blessing me with an unforgettable day. Harpers Ferry las left me with unforgettable moments.
