Make the most of your new year by getting out to see what’s happening across Montgomery County!
From amazing shopping and miles of trails to top-quality restaurants and dozens of avenues of entertainment, there’s no shortage of awesome things to do in see right in our backyard, writes Emily Keel for the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board.
Get Your Steps In
The New Year always encourages us to get up and get moving. Whether your goal is to hit 10,000 steps a day or simply to get outside and enjoy the sunshine, Montgomery County has over 96 miles of trails spread throughout our borders.
In addition to our miles of trails, we’re also the home of the world-famous Valley Forge National Historical Park, which boasts miles of trails that you can walk, run or bike through any time.
Hit the Slopes at Spring Mountain
As we head into the thick of the winter season, why not get out and make an adventure of a lovely winter day?
Spring Mountain has everything for winter thrill-seekers; snowboarding, skiing, and snow tubing abound!
Not a huge fan of the cold? Don’t worry, there are plenty of spaces in and around the lodge (and by the nice warm fireplaces) for you to relax and enjoy the season from a comfortable seat.
