A classic American getaway, Bucks County is 625 square miles of covered bridges, stone barns, hills, and waterways. It’s an area that manages to pair relaxing countryside with cosmopolitan innovation. The area’s roots run deep. The very founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn, made his home here. His house, a brick Georgian-style mansion on the banks of the Delaware, was built in the 1600s (it has since been faithfully reconstructed). And that famous painting of George Washington and his troops crossing the Delaware? The actual event happened a few miles down the road from the county’s largest town, New Hope. This chapter covers a complete weekend getaway. Inside you'll find information on what to see and do, tours, sports, shopping, local events, lodging, dining, and essential travel information
