  • Saw the outside on our driving tour. The park is huge and you must dedicate a whole day if you want to see everything.  more »
  • In valley forge Park and kept the same as always. You can go inside as long as there's not a wedding. Or just walk around the park area. Open everyday.  more »
  • Worth stopping by for if you are visiting the Valley Forge Historic Park. Beautiful inside and out. It won't take long to walk through and every little donation is very helpful in preserving the chapel. (since the chapel does not receive any funding that goes to the Valley Forge Historic Park)
  • I just love that I live so close to all of this history. So informative. A lot of events. Trails to walk or ride. Wildlife. History. It's amazing!!
