Historically rich and packed with interesting and fun activities is the best way to describe Jefferson County. The Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races is a poplar spot for vacationers. 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 annual Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festival will be held on September 27-29, 2019 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.  Come meet approximately 200 vendors and artisans, listen to the best live bluegrass music, taste wines from the area’s wineries and enjoy a variety of food.

Visit the place developed by the Washington family; Charles Town is the site of many of their homes and farms. The famed Old Opera House Theatre offers year-round entertainment – from musicals to live dance & concerts.

The region is filled with outdoor recreation. Trip planning for the region offers opportunities for paddling, fishing, and white-water raft trips.

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 on the southern bank of the Potomac River between Martinsburg and Harpers Ferry.
