PRESIDENTS' DAY WEEKEND
Valley Forge & Montgomery County
Presidents' Day and Valentine's Day fall on the same weekend this year, making it a great time to escape with (or without) the family, and there's no better place to go than where the holiday began in Valley Forge and Montgomery County.
One of the biggest events of the year at Valley Forge National Historical Park is the annual Washington's Birthday celebration. Sing Happy Birthday to the father of our country, enjoy Martha's homemade birthday cupcakes and join the Continental Army.
Valentine's Day falls on the three-day weekend this year, that means an extra day to spend with the one you love. But romance doesn't have to be just flowers and chocolate. In Montgomery County, you can take a ziplining adventure for two, ride a dinner train through history or enjoy a Valentine's Day beer tasting.
Get a jump-start on your long weekend by coming out a day early. Friday starts the annual Scottish & Irish Music Festival and Fair at the Valley Forge Casino Resort as well as the Philadelphia Golf Show. You can also catch a show at one of our great theaters or make your own heart-shaped glass.
Saturday night you can celebrate with our without the kids. The Glencairn Museum hosts a romantic night of Baroque music while the Elmwood Park Zoo's Valentine's Kids Night lets you drop off the kids for a night of four-legged fun. A wine education class and distillery tours are also great for an adults-only escape.
Valentine's Day arrives on the Sunday before Presidents' Day, creating a mix of history and romance at Montgomery County's biggest attractions. Take a couple's ziplining adventure at Elmwood Park Zoo, enjoy the Hearts & Hops Beer Festival in the Bryn Athyn Historic District, or head to the Keswick Theatre to hear the soulful sounds of Jeffrey Osborne.
End your weekend with a day of celebration. In addition to Washington's Birthday Party at Valley Forge, the Elmwood Park Zoo is celebrating the pets of our presidents. Then in the evening, the Sellersville Theater is giving you a free screening of the original Iron Man (2008).
Don't miss out on a long weekend full of romance, excitement and celebration. Spend the weekend in one of Montgomery County's 74 hotels, all of whom are ready to host you and the ones you love this Presidents' Day weekend.
