Better small pictureHistory and scenic beauty truly do come together where the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers meet in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia!  It’s the perfect area for a weekend getaway or day excursion as my husband, Paul and I discovered on our recent visit there.  The town of Harpers Ferry sits on an area of land that is at the eastern-most point of West Virginia and is bordered by the Potomac River on one side and the Shenandoah River on the other.  These two beautiful rivers make it a favorite spot for rafting, canoeing, tubing and fishing.  In addition to water sports, it’s also a popular area for mountain biking and rock climbing.  For enthusiastic hikers, the Appalachian Trail passes right through the heart of town. read more….
