Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, and Charles Town, WV Professional Review and Guide
"Today visitors enjoy driving through the quiet, country town of Shepherdstown to sense the presence of its history, especially in the downtown area, which has been designated a historical district on the National Register. Harpers Ferry stands as a living museum describing the actions of a man whose words and deeds prophesied the advent of the Civil War. Harpers Ferry National Historic Park is a remarkable restoration of a time and events in America’s history. It offers twenty-three points of interest within and around the area.
Charles Town and the Charles Town Races are located in the Shenandoah Valley, in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. You may want to gather a group of friends to enjoy a day of thoroughbred racing at this beautiful track. Top off your day with convenient dining at the Skyline Terrace for a spectacular view from the terraced tables. 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."
