    I love the cabins, cannons and reenactments. If you get the chance don't forget the visitors center they have souvenirs and display cases of artifacts found on the grounds.

    If the soldiers survived winter without shoes, you probably don't need them either.

    If you drive through the park, be sure and cross the old covered bridge that crosses the Valley Forge stream. You can park and have several choices for a pick-nic.
