With a population of less than 300, Harpers Ferry is as quaint as they come.
Step off the beaten path and head to Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship and Gathland State Park. Escape the urban bustle at Antietam National Battlefield and Maryland Heights Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Harpers Ferry: Boonsboro (Rural Heritage Museum & Turn the Page Bookstore), Sharpsburg (Antietam Creek & Burnside's Bridge) and Catoctin Wildlife Preserve (in Thurmont). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, explore and take pictures at Shepherd University, tour the pleasant surroundings at Appalachian National Scenic Trail, and don't miss a visit to White Hall Tavern.

To find ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Harpers Ferry online tour planner .

If you are flying in from Ukraine, the closest major airports are Washington Dulles International Airport, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Harpers Ferry can reach 27°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
