Charles Town / Jefferson County, West Virginia

I-81 Exit 12. Historically rich and packed with interesting and fun activities is the best way to describe Jefferson County. The primary towns are Harpers Ferry, Charles Town, and Shepherdstown.

Harpers Ferry is a destination featuring wonderful outdoor activities, excellent historic sites, and beautiful natural surroundings. It was built in a natural pass through the mountains, where the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers converge - the meeting place that set the stage for amazing human drama to occur. The easiest way to visit is to enter the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park on US 340.

Charles Town was developed by the Washington family (yes, that one!) and is the site of many of their homes and farms. The famed Charles Town Races & Slots is located just outside of downtown. It features an extensive and creative slot machine casino and world-class horse racing. The historic district features a Walking Tour with 30 sites in an 11-block area.

When you drive around the bend and enter Shepherdstown, you’ll take a quick breath at the view of German Street and say, “Wow, what a great postcard this would make!” Shepherdstown is a beautifully preserved, centuries-old town with no superhighway connections. Isolated on the southern bank of the Potomac River between Martinsburg and Harpers Ferry, the town boasts exceptional shops and lodging. The Visitor Center on German Street offers a brochure with over 50 sites to see on a Walking Tour.
