The Brandywine Valley and Valley Forge National Historical Park, PA Professional Review and Guide
"Rich with culture, the Brandywine Valley has become synonymous with regional art. The artists and craftsmen of the area were, and are still, some of the finest in our country. Examples of their work can be found in many historic inns, antiques shops, and museums dotting the valley. A visit to this area is a step back into America’s past. This charming countryside along the banks of the Brandywine River features museums, country estates, and some of our country’s finest natural, historic, and artistic treasures.
The 3,600-acre park of Valle Forge is the site of the famed winter encampment of General George Washington and the Continental Army in the unforgiving winter of 1777 to 1778. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Baltimore. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
