With a population of less than 300, Harpers Ferry is as quaint as they come.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Two Twisted Posts Winery and Shepherd University. Venture out of the city with trips to Boonsboro (Turn the Page Bookstore, Washington County Rural Heritage Museum, & more), Catoctin Wildlife Preserve (in Thurmont) and Sharpsburg (Burnside's Bridge & Antietam Creek). Next up on the itinerary: witness the site of a historic battle at Antietam National Battlefield, do a tasting at Breaux Vineyards, take an in-depth tour of Shepherdstown Museum, and explore the striking landscape of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.
