Valley Forge

It’s said “the American Spirit” was born in Valley Forge, where the fledgling Continental Army, under the leadership of General George Washington, was transformed from rag-tag to ready-to-fight for freedom from oppression. When you visit, you’ll learn the challenges of a long, cold winter without food and proper clothes, but you’ll also appreciate the sacrifices and devotion to freedom of a truly multicultural army of new “Americans.”

More than two centuries later, Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, are in the midst of another revolution insuring the rights of all Americans as the Valley Forge Convention and Visitors Bureau welcomes you to experience the wide diversity of its people, places and things to do. We’re members of the Gay and Lesbian Convention and Visitors Bureau, International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association and the Philadelphia Gay Tourism Caucus, so we know our audience and we know what you’re looking for when you travel. If you live in the mid-Atlantic area, you won’t even have to travel very far to reach us…our close proximity to New York, Washington, Baltimore and neighboring Philadelphia make planning a gay vacation getaway or meeting a breeze.

In fact, Valley Forge is just 30 minutes from Philadelphia’s Gayborhood, where the GLBT community is indulged with exceptional restaurants, night spots, boutique shops, and gay events. Book your stay in one of the Valley Forge area’s gay-welcoming, TAG®-approved hotels and you can enjoy all the hot and trendy digs in our laid-back suburbs and the City of Brotherly Love.

Our wide range of member hotels for every wallet, and their hospitality professionals, understand what it means to be truly “welcoming,” and they go the extra mile to deliver. So let us help you plan your visit. Between first class hotel accommodations and worldly cuisine, to up-market and outlet shopping destinations or quaint rural villages and Main Streets, to inspiring historical and cultural attractions, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do and enjoy!
