Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Harpers Ferry is located where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet and is right on the border of Virginia and Maryland. It is a historic place which was once a key industrial centre (the National Armoury was located here) and had a key role in the US Civil War. A hike along the Appalachian Trail which passes through the town or to the overlook across the river from Maryland Heights brings some spectacular sights!
