If Washington Found Us, You Can, Too
Visitors to Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, have the advantage of 21st century transportation to get here - a convenience that our most famous traveler from the past did not have. Plus, chances are you won't be bringing 12,500 of your closest colleagues with you, complete with their muskets, cannons, provisions and families.
Your trip doesn't sound so difficult now, does it?
By Car and Motorcoach
We are easily accessible by roadways. A network of major highways offer routes from every direction:
• Exits 326 through 343 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike serve us, easing entry/exit from the east (N.J.) and the west (Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, etc.). The exit for Valley Forge National Historical Park , the King of Prussia Mall and the Valley Forge Casino Resort is 326.
• Driving from Philadelphia or Atlantic City? The Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) is your best bet
• Our immediate neighbors from the south (Delaware, for instance) can take U.S. Route 202 and land virtually in our backyard
• Visitors from the distant north (New York, New England, etc.) or the south (D.C., the Carolinas, Florida, etc.) can access I-95 to get here and get home
Weather and traffic can often complicate even the most pleasant of journeys to our area. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation offers a service to allow you to check conditions via mobile, tablet or other device, while you're in transit or before you even leave the house. 511PA provides travelers with reliable up-to-the-minute information to help you reach your destination. Check the updates by either calling 511 or visiting the 511PA website.
Our nearest hub for visitors arriving by air is Philadelphia International Airport, which serves the sixth largest metropolitan center in the U.S. Some visitors also arrive via Atlantic City International Airport, which necessitates a 1 1/2-hour drive. Smaller options include Northeast Philadelphia Airport, which caters to charter business travelers both domestically and internationally. Within Montgomery County, Pennsylvania itself are Wings Field and Pottstown Municipal Airport.
Once on the ground, numerous resources for cab and limo transportation are available.
The Amtrak Acela Service can whisk you from New York or Washington D.C. to Philadelphia's 30thStreet Station in less time than you can watch a Hollywood blockbuster on your tablet. From there Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania., are accessible by cab, trolley, regional rail or limo.
Amtrak also features limited service directly to Paoli Station, where ground transportation is available for destinations in the King of Prussia/Valley Forge area.
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (we call it SEPTA) has an extensive network of buses, trains and trolleys that can bring you from Center City Philadelphia to our area and back again. The closest Regional Rail connectors to/from Valley Forge are the stations on the Paoli-Thorndale Line (exiting at Paoli Station) and the Norristown Line (exiting at Norristown Transportation Center).
