The site of George Washington's winter 1777 encampment, Valley Forge is one of the nation's best known Revolutionary War landmarks. The National Park Service-run park is a haven for nature lovers looking for a place to stroll, ride a bike or admire families of deer, and it's a can't miss destination for history buffs who can explore myriad sections and sites of the park either on their own, with an audio guide, on a trolley or under the tutelage of a ranger. Both kids and adults can build a strong affinity for the park and its history through a variety of interactive, age-appropriate, living history activities.
