Bucks County — Unsuspecting Bucks County has wooed artists, actors, writers, and musicians for over a century (among them Pearl S. Buck and Oscar Hammerstein Jr.) with its rustic simplicity and colonial history. Covered bridges, hundreds of square miles of preserved farmland, historic country inns and B&Bs, and quaint towns lined with taverns, boutiques, and art galleries, contribute to the refreshing, rural ambience. Located just outside Philadelphia and across the Delaware River from New Jersey, this picturesque region is an easy escape for city-dwellers seeking small-town charm, rolling meadows, and woods.

Why Go

For a historic farmhouse B&B, the galleries and taverns of New Hope, and mule-drawn boat rides down the Delaware Canal.
