Montgomery County Information

Montgomery County is the third most populous county in Pennsylvania. Located close to Philadelphia, it offers all the amenities of busy, urban living but with a softer, more natural side as well. The big city atmosphere can quickly be left behind and you can relax and enjoy one of the many venues supported by the park and recreation network.

Valley Forge Historical Park is one of the top attractions in the area, drawing thousands of visitors and locals annually. In addition to the famous American Revolution Battlefields, the park has more than 35,000 acres of hiking trails, bicycling paths, and picnicking areas for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. The park is also well known for its intense colors in the fall, and it's a great place to cross-country ski or to go sledding during the snowy winter months.

Montgomery County is comprised of many upscale cities whose residents commute each week to Philadelphia. The county has earned the title of 20th wealthiest county in the United States. If you like shopping, Montgomery County is the "mother lode!" Malls like the Montgomery County and Plymouth Meeting Malls offer stores for every shopper and every pocketbook. The area is also loaded with small boutiques and antique shops that rival the best in the country. If you visit at the right time of the year, the German Folk Festivals held in the area draw many local artists and craftspeople with goods you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.

For history buffs, Montgomery County is the perfect destination. There are high concentrations of historical homes in the area ranging from log cabins to the governor's mansion. Take the time to drop in and see one of these homes, and stay to see the rest of magnificent Montgomery County.
