Day Trip to Harper’s Ferry

It’s summer time! For those of us in DC, or any major city, we know that the heat can stifle any-and-every thing. After a long week of drilling work and social obligations, blogging, and  life in general all I want to do is languidly lounge in some water.

One of my favorite day trips in which to do this is to head to Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia. Just an hour and a half West of DC is the West Virginia border, straddling the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. Grab your friends and a cooler of snacks and canned wine or beer and hit the road towards the Harper’s Ferry Adventure Center.

This is my second year in a row of making this a summer tradition and it gets better every time. I have always chosen their tubing adventure, where you take your friends and a cooler and lazily float down the river sipping, snacking, and enjoying life. With the backdrop of the Shenandoah mountains there’s no shortage of awe inspiring sights. If you’re lucky, you’ll even see a heron or other wildlife!

Other activities include ziplining through the trees and mountains, hiking, kayaking, canoeing….Anything outdoorsy and it can be done in Harper’s Ferry! If you’re in the DC/Baltimore/Virginia area I definitely suggest you check them out.

What’s your favorite summer tradition? How do you check-out and enjoy the sun?
