    Best coffee in the world! So much better and less expensive than Starbucks, and it is a local phenomenon (it does not exist even in Western PA)

  • 2. Dublin Diner

    Diner Prices, Incredible French Toast!

  • 3. Pearl S. Buck House
    Pearl S. Buck House, Doylestown

    interesting and historic, house where Pearl S. Buck actually lived, and as I recall, relatively inexpensive.

  • 4. The China Wok

    IF you're in the mood for Chinese food I would absolutely recommend the China Wok! It's inexpensive but the food is delicious and the green tea is complimentary, AND there is NO MSG in their food, so it is even good for the health conscious.

  • 5. Dominick's in Plumsteadville, near the Wawa

    You want a Philly cheesesteak outside of Philly, this is the closest you can get! They also serve delicious pizza and other Italian delights. Inexpensive too!

  • 6. Capri's

    Italian Restaurant that also serves Pizza and Cheesesteaks, as well as grinders and other italian delicacies. Food is inexpensive but delicious!

  • 7. Ralph Stover State Park

    One of the best places to see the beauty of nature, with something for everyone. There are playgrounds and wading for kids and adults, rock climbing for the adventurous, nature trails and gorgeous views from High Rocks.

  • 8. Pennsbury Manor

    Pennsbury Manor (Home of William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania aka Penn's woods)

  • 9. Washington's Crossing

    Where George Washington crossed the Delaware River to regain strength and morale for his troops. (he later crossed back to Trenton, NJ)

  • 10. Summerseat

    This is the place that was used as the headquarters for George Washington and his troops

  • 11. The Many covered bridges in Bucks County

    I have personally seen the ones in Erwinna, Sheard's Mill, Cabin Run, Loux, Van Sant, and Frankenfield, and I think that the views are Gorgeous!

  • 12. Delaware River and Delaware Canal

    While you are here in Bucks County, PA you must see the Delaware. It is rarely known by "outsiders" that you can walk along the locks of the Delaware Canal, which runs parallel to the river. There are little islands tucked between the canal and the low-tide river water. It's a MUST SEE DESTINATION!

  • 13. While Driving along Route 32, known locally as River Road.....

    There are tons of places to stop and take pictures of the Rock Formations along Rte. 32, locally known as River Road, but my favorite is the Indian Head, called Indian Rock. You would have to take Brigeton Hill down to the road to see it from above since that section of Rte. 32 flooded out a while back.

  • 14. Ringing Rocks Park

    Take something to hit the rocks with, because they make sounds when hit, also there are some amazing waterfalls, and it's free to get in.

  • 15. Trauger's Farm Market (Seasonal)

    This is a great place to go strawberry picking in late spring-early summer and pumpkin picking in the fall! You can also get gift baskets made in or around Christmastime! Very kid friendly and inexpensive!

  • 16. Bucks County Wineries and Vineyards

    For those who are 21 and over, you can enjoy a walk through the intricate wine-making process, sometimes a walk through the vineyard, followed by a wine-tasting. Sometimes there are buses that go through a wine tour of Bucks County, these are typically seasonal, so be sure to check the website first.

  • 17. The Plumsteadville Inn

    Bring some extra money if you want to stay at a hotel in Bucks County as this area can get pricey when it comes to overnight stays. Usually they cost anywhere from $95 to $225 per night, although Plumstead is not as expensive as others ($95-$160 per night). Most hotels offer some sort of weekday stay package, but weekends tend to be more expensive. Do Not Forget to Make RESERVATIONS, and you must have a valid CREDIT CARD!
