septa bus 125 will take you there, but it will be about a 1 hour 15 min ride.

I am assuming that you mean this is the only

public transportation to VF?

Thank you very much for the information.

If you are going to Valley Forge for the historic sites, you will need a car. The park is much too large to visit by public transportation. If you are trying to go to King of Prussia Mall, the bus is fine.

That is the only way I know of to get there.

Owlyn makes a good point about the size of the park...it is huge. However, I noticed on their website that they are offering some kind of trolly tour ...though it only operates on the weekends through Oct. 26...if you time your visit to coincide with the trolley tour you will be fine. Otherwise, anything other than the visitor center will be a long walk away.

Thanks to you both. I have been to VF, but it's

been many years ago. I am now looking into renting

a car with a friend.

thanks for all your suggestions and information....

How did your trip to VF go?

I have friends coming from California this weekend and they don't have access to a car. Should they rent one or did you find an alternative method?

We ended renting a car, less hassle and have more time to do what we wanted.

Good luck on your trip!

Hello 1974traveller1974,

Have them rent a car. It's a very easy drive from the airport to Valley Forge, and probably less expensive.

1. I-95 S (5 miles) to the I-476 N exit (exit #7), 2. Drive 16.4 miles to the I-76 W exit (exit #16B). 3. Take the US-202/US-422 W exit, (exit 328B-A, toward KING OF PRUSSIA/WEST CHESTER/POTTSTOWN).
