After a busy day in Philadelphia it was nice to spend a few hours at Vally Forge. I read Being George Washington by Glenn Beck so I had a vision of Valley Forge in my head. You can't walk the whole park. It's huge. You could bike if you have one. We took the tour on a tram. I'm happy we did. Our guide gave us a lot of information we wouldn't have got. There is an audio tour you can purchase for a tour in your own and I think they have one you can pare to you iphone. If you want to just walk, bike or drive on your own it's free. There is a railroad station, George Washington's Headquarters, the Arch, hut type dwellings the soldiers constructed to survive the winter and many monuments from the states recognizing their soldiers, Maine being the first, even though it wasn't a state during the revolutionary war. In the visitors center there are a lot of things to look at as well as a short film. We visit a lot of historical places and I think the places run by the Park Rangers do the best job. They are very knowlegible and always very friendly.
