Fort Lee Historic Park
Fort Lee Historic Park is located in Fort Lee, New Jersey just south of the George Washington Bridge. The park is part of the Palisades Interstate Park Commission and consists of 33 acres of cliff side land. The park includes a visitor center, hiking paths, a reconstructed revolutionary war encampment and spectacular views of the George Washington Bridge and New York City. You can pack a lunch and walk through the park on your own or you can participate in one of the parks special events or programs.
I was lucky enough to attend the “living history” school program at this park twice with my children and consider it one of the best school field trips I have ever chaperoned. The park employees are in period dress and the children are recruits in the revolutionary war, with the goal of becoming a soldier by the end of the day. It is a great experience of a day in the life of a soldier.
