What impressed me most were the archaeological dig sites - you can walk right up to them and see millennia-old city walls. My US-bred mind simply can't wrap itself around something so old, and yet so tangible. This isn't simply a song about Joshua fighting a battle, these are real artifacts from thousands and thousands of years ago that are incredibly accessible!
Jericho is also one of the last stops before the Allenby Bridge. My advice for you, if you're going to try to brave this border crossing back into Jordan: stop off in Jericho, enjoy the history and the scenery, and stock up on provisions. You're in for a long, long wait ahead.
