Harpers Ferry National Historical ParkHarpers Ferry John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry was an effort by armed abolitionist John Brown to initiate an armed slave revolt in 1859 by taking over a United States arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Brown's party of 22 was defeated by a company of U.S. Marines, led by First Lieutenant Israel Greene. Colonel Robert E. Lee was in overall command of the operation to retake the arsenal.

6. Valley Forge National Historical ParkValley Forge The Village of Valley Forge is an unincorporated settlement located on the west side of Valley Forge National Historical Park at the confluence of Valley Creek and the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania, United States. The remaining village is in Schuylkill Township of Chester County, but once spanned Valley Creek into Montgomery County. The name Valley Forge is often used to refer to anywhere in the general vicinity of the park, and many places actually in King of Prussia, Trooper, Oaks, and other nearby communities will use the name, leading to some ambiguity on the actual location of the modern village. There is a partial re-creation of the historic village from the time of the American Revolution that is located next door, and just within the outskirts of the park. Valley Forge is known ...

7. Indian Echo CavernsHummelstown Indian Echo Caverns is a show cave in Derry Township near Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, USA. The limestone caves are open for the public to visit via guided tour. The entrance to the caverns used by modern visitors is located in a bluff along the Swatara Creek. A second entrance was sealed for security purposes when the caverns were commercialized in the late 1920s. The known portions of the caverns, most of which have been commercialized, represent the intersection of two passages: the eastern cavern and the northern cavern, which meet at right angles to form a large space known as the Indian Ballroom.

Rocks State Park, Jarrettsville, Maryland
I have been to Rocks State Park, but not to this section of the park at Rock Ridge picnic area. This is a beautiful place that you could swear was in the mountains. This park is not highly advertised, it is a local treasure in Harford County Maryland I am sure. Sorry for any shakiness as I didn't want to fall down and hurt myself and had to pay attention to where I was walking!
Highest Waterfall in Maryland at Swallow Falls State Park [CeleGREAT OUTDOORS]
Interestingly enough, the waterfall that steals the show isn’t called Swallow Falls; it’s called Muddy Creek Falls, and water crashes 53 feet down the rocks of this waterfall. I found it a little odd that the park wasn’t named after the highest waterfall in the state, but the namesake falls have a cool meaning behind their name. You see, there’s a big rock pillar that has trees growing on top of it, like an elevated island, and it sits right below Upper Swallow Falls. And tons of cliff swallows use to nest on that little rocky island, hence the name of the falls and the park. I was actually thinking about climbing up that little rock pillar when I was there.
HOW DO YOU GET HERE? It’s pretty dang close to Deep Creek Lake in Maryland but, to make things easy for you, just click here for directions: You’ll see the start of the trail is right off the one corner of the parking lot as well. Make sure that you have some one dollar bills on you, because it appears that they don’t staff the booth for entrance fees. They run on an honor system, so you probably won’t be able to get change for bigger bills, unless someone else is there.
