The best place to experience the history of Washington's Crossing is the village on the Pennsylvania side of the river. The village features many structures built in the late 18th century and early 19th century. During summer weekends, there are reinactments with British and American troops.
Bowman's Hill Tower is located 5 miles to the north of Washington's Crossing village on the Pennsylvania side. It is a 110 foot brick tower built in 1930 to commerorate the best lookout point used during the Revolution. It offers a great panaramic view of the surrounding area.
Washington Crossing State Park New Jersey
A nice kept state park. It has many historical structures. Also, the park is heavily wooded. The park can be reached by foot from the Pennsylvania side.
150 Glenwood Drive, Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania, 18977, United States
Good for: Business
Located about 5 miles from I-95. Off NJ State Route 29 or PA State Route 532. In my opinion, Route 29 is the best way.
Favorite thing: On both sides of the river, there are many historic structures. The main village is on the Pennsylvania side. Old Revolutionary Era houses can be toured in the National Historic Area, which is located on the PA side as well. It is worth the visit for any historic buff.
Fondest memory: Here is a scene from the re-enactment of the Delaware Crossing. Continental Troops fire several rounds from a Revolutionary Era Cannon.
