An Artsy Day in Doylestown

  • See where Henry Mercer created his famous decorative tiles at Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. Artisans at this living history museum still produce tiles and mosaics in the style of Mercer’s original designs. Next door, you can tour Fonthill Museum, Mercer’s 44-room concrete castle that houses his personal collection of tiles and prints. Finally, catch a movie at County Theater, a 75-year-old art deco theater specializing in independent, art and foreign films.


Fun with the Kids in New Hope

  • Let the little ones explore and learn at the Bucks County Children’s Museum.  Kids can build their own race car, fly a hot air balloon or dig for buried treasure. The Museum is so much fun that kids won’t even know they are learning. Next, turn the kids loose for some indoor fun at Giggleberry Fair at Peddler’s Village, where they can ride the 1922 carousel or climb to the top of Giggleberry Mountain. For a relaxing end to the day, catch a performance at the Bucks County Playhouse, “America’s Most Famous Summer Theatre.”  


Release Your Inner Child

  • Eighteen holes of indoor, glow-in-the-dark fun is waiting for you at Monster Mini Golf in Feasterville. Just down the street, Brunswick Zone XL offers 48 bowling lanes, six billiards tables and the Lazer Zone Arena where everyone can feel young at heart. More grown-up fun awaits at PARX Casino. This adult playground in Bensalem has more than 3,500 slot machines, 120 table games and 60 poker tables. Grab dinner at one of the casino’s seven restaurants, and party into the night at 360 nightclub.
