    Harpers Ferry is a historic town in Jefferson County, West Virginia. It is situated at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers where the U.S. states of Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia meet. The town is located on a low lying flood plain created by the two rivers, it is thus surrounded by higher ground on all sides. Historically, Harpers Ferry is best known for John Brown's raid on the Armory in 1859 and its role in the American Civil War. As of the 2000 census, the town had a population of 307.

    The lower part of Harpers Ferry is located within Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Most of the remainder, which includes the higher, more populated area, is included in the separate Harpers Ferry Historic District. Two other National Register of Historic Places properties adjoin the town: the B & O Railroad Potomac River Crossing and St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church.

    The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) headquarters is located in Harpers Ferry and the town is one of only a few that the Appalachian Trail passes directly through.

      • Winchester
        Winchester, Virginia, is a market town and college town in the Shenandoah Valley. It's long been known as an apple production and distribution center. The Apple Blossom Festival engages the town and surrounding area each May. Historic Winchester has played a role in the Colonial era, the American Revolution, and the Civil War.

      • Herndon
        Herndon, Virginia is a large city in Northern Virginia, I suspect it was created by wealthy influential landowners. It encompasses Dulles International Airport and Reston. Reston is home to many LARGE software development companies - think Accenture, Oracle, SAP, Computer Associates, Nextel, etc. etc.

        Most significant about Herndon - it is the best connecting city for Washington DC and Dulles Airport. To reach DC you could leave your car at the Park & Ride for free. You could also take a short ride by taxi to the park and ride. After that you can take a fast take a fast commuter bus to DC or to West Falls Church metro station.

        With a very large residential community, this is not a mecca for party-goers, rather it morphs into a bedroom community after office hours.

        Several fine dining options, hotels, shopping centers, Malls are also found in this area.
