Things to do

Fun for families in Bucks County

If you've got kids to entertain, the hard work is done for you at the likes of the Bucks County Children's Museum and Giggleberry Fair, the latter a 3-story obstacle course in Lahaska's Peddler's Village. At Wrightstown, Carousel Village is a hotspot for family fun, due in part to the historic Herschell Spillman Carousel. Time for a treat? You'll find ice cream parlors and waffle houses in an abundance here. Grown-ups can skip the fun of the fair in favor of sipping their way through the much-lauded wineries and vineyards on the Bucks County Wine Trail.


Enjoy the Bucks County lifestyle

Of all the postcard-perfect towns in Bucks County, Doylestown is a must see, with its selection of one-of-a-kind stores, vintage boutiques and independent bookshops offering a great opportunity to enjoy a little rest and relaxation along Main Street. Should you be in the mood for a spot of culture, whether it's exploring the 44 rooms of the grand Fonthill Castle or admiring the elaborate collection of early American artifacts at the Mercer Museum, you'll find it here. Ready to explore further afield? The riverside dining and nightlife in New Hope are experiences not to be missed.
