Harpers Ferry Travel Guide

Harpers Ferry is named after its first settler, Robert Harper. The town is located in Jefferson County, West Virginia. Harper's Ferry is an interesting town and it has lots of amazing history. Needless to say, it forms a major part of America's history. The town is situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in between the Shenandoah and the Potamic rivers. Naturally, Harper's heirs inherited the land after his death, but it was bought from them in 1796 by the then American president to be used for the federal armory. That deal was the start of rifle manufacturing in Harpers Ferry. The famous Harpers Ferry raid happened in October of 1859, masterminded by John Brown and his team members. The sole purpose was the abolition of the slave trade, which failed as most of John's team members were killed in the raid while the rest were publicly executed.

Harpers Ferry was repeatedly attacked during the civil war but the city is now peaceful, and in fact, it's history now serves as a tourist attraction for many. Welcome to Harpers Ferry, a city rich in history and culture as well as warm, fun-loving locals. You'll definitely love your stay in this town. Here are some nice things to do in Harpers Ferry.

Things to Do in Harpers Ferry

If you've heard so much about the American Civil war and the part Harpers Ferry played in it, then the first place you should visit is Harpers Ferry National Historic Park and get a feel of the war’s historical significance. Things to enjoy with your family and friends when you visit this park include hiking, visiting museum exhibition, a guided tour into the history of the civil war, and so much more. You could also buy books and stationery from Harpers Ferry Park Association's Bookshop.

Aside from visiting historic sites like Jefferson rock, The Point, and John Brown's Fort, you can also enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, canoeing, fishing, and kayaking. The good thing is they can be done at any time of the year because Harpers park is bounded by two rivers than never run dry.

Best Time to Visit Harpers Ferry

It largely depends on your weather preference, your purpose for visiting and your budget. If you are seeking warm or hot weather, then you would want to visit between June and August. Harpers Ferry is cold in most other times of the year, largely because it is surrounded by rivers.

If you have a low budget, you could still visit Harpers Ferry and enjoy your holiday, but you will have to visit when there is not much tourism going on, this is because, during the time tourist activities are much, the cost of hotels, rentals, and general tourist attractions would skyrocket. The best time for a low budget visit is October.
