The 500-acre Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) hosts thousands of visitors every year, from local schoolchildren to visitors from around the world, who come to see the point from which a battered and dispirited American army launched a counterattack that reversed its long losing streak, preserving its will to fight and maintaining the revolutionary spirit that would lead to independence for the United States. But Washington Crossing Historic Park represents much more than a single event. Restored Colonial buildings in the park, such as the Thompson-Neely House and McConkey Ferry Inn, give many clues about living conditions during the Revolutionary era. Later, homes and shops reveal how 19th-century rural Pennsylvanians lived and worked. Among them are the home of a prosperous merchant, a village general store, and homes for skilled artisans. The park also contains Bowman's Hill Tower, Revolutionary War soldiers' graves, stone memorials, picnic pavilions and historic collections.

Lynette was the most informed tour guide I have ever had. She truly brought this home and it's history to life. Her knowledge of this site was wonderful! General Washington stayed in the Hasbrock's home for 15 months while fighting the English stationed in NYC. There is a small museum also on the property. Well worth your time.

It is very informative and historic. It is where General George Washington the Delaware River Christmas morning to march on Trenton. They do a reenactment every Christmas. The park is nice.

It is a wonderful historical place and park, there so many things to do along the river and the Canal, which include riding your bike to Yardley South or to New Hope North. The area where the Delaware River and the Delaware Canal meet is one of the most picturesque places you will find in the Northeastern part of the... More

Even though this has a key element to the American Revolution I was very bored. The Visitors Center does have an exhibit but me not being a history buff it did not hold my attention.

We took the hour-long tour from the visitor center. It is a bargain at $6 per person. It starts with an introductory film which is ok but not nearly the caliber of the one they show on the New Jersey side. Then a docent leads you on a great short walking tour which includes information on the importance of the... More

We just came by this new PA State Park by accident. Right on the Delaware River, obviously. Large park with plenty of places to walk and park. Clean. Free. Informative personnel. Office was open on a Saturday.

The movie and tour cost $6 total and are well worth it. As in most historical places, just walking around the museum is good but the guided tour makes it come alive! There is a historical novel called "Washington's Crossing" that is very entertaining and tells the story of the Revolutionary War with a focus on these battles.

Happy Birthday George! What a great time celebrating the birthday of one of our truly great leaders. Touring the Inn, the Blacksmith shop, the Boats, and of course the amazing Welcome center where we all sang "Happy Birthday" to George. And of course we enjoyed cake cut with Georges own sword.

This park recognizes and celebrates our first president's crossing of the Delaware River it failed to seem disorganized and very much self-learning. I was not happy having to venture on my own 4 1/2 miles north to find a less than impressive second section very poorly marked by signage that I got lost finding it and then locating the gravesite....
