Valley Forge

The Valley Forge area, where George Washington built a revolution's army during the harsh winter of 1777, was a far different place than today's 3,600-acre Valley Forge National Historical Park. Here, amidst rolling hills and natural splendor, are soldiers' huts, cannons, Washington's headquarters and the Memorial Arch to recall one of America's founding moments.

Today's Valley Forge area is also high-spirited and alive with a diversity of appeals and adventures for all tastes and all the family. See living history at centuries-old homes, and stroll through dozens of the area's fragrant gardens. Appreciate art, from the Brandywine's own Wyeths to the world renowned Barnes Foundation. Shop quaint country villages, along the chic Main Line, or at malls, including King of Prussia, the East Coast's largest and most upscale. Feast, fast food to five star, on regional and international cuisine. Then rest well at hotels and inns at every level of luxury and affordability.

Your Valley Forge area and Montgomery County vacation headquarters is minutes away from the sights and activities of neighboring historic Philadelphia, yet convenient to Lancaster's peaceful Pennsylvania Dutch country, and the excitement of the seashore's Atlantic City. Any time of the year, Valley Forge is a welcoming and exciting glimpse of America, then and now.
