With a population of less than 300, Harpers Ferry is as quaint as they come.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Tue): brush up on your military savvy at Civil War Living History Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Ruins of St. John's Episcopal Church, contemplate the long history of White Hall Tavern, stroll the grounds of Harper Cemetery, then explore the landscape on two wheels at C&O Canal Trust Lockhouse 28, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at C&O Canal Hike at Point of Rocks Boat Ramp.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Harpers Ferry online trip builder.

Washington DC to Harpers Ferry is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train. Traveling from Washington DC in March, plan for a bit cooler nights in Harpers Ferry, with lows around 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) early enough to travel to Charleston.
