Shepherdstown, West Virginia Is One Of America’s Most Walkable Small Towns, And There Are Delights Around Every Corner

One of the most walkable towns in West Virginia is also one of the oldest towns in the state: Shepherdstown. Tucked along the Potomac River in the lower Shenandoah Valley, this historic community in Jefferson County is a small town well worth getting to know. And what better way to get to know it than by taking the Historic Shepherdstown Walking Tour past 59 (yes, 59!) notable historic sites?

Start your walking tour at Historic Shepherdstown Museum (located at 129 East German Street) to pick up a printed copy of the rest of the tour and learn more about the significance of each of the buildings in the Shepherdstown Historic District. Alternatively, download the walking tour map or app from the Historic Shepherdstown Museum’s website. And after a satisfying day of walking around Shepherdstown, prop your feet up and relax with a meal and an overnight stay at the luxurious Bavarian Inn.
