Some of Pennsylvania’s most picturesque fields, wooded hillsides, and gentle river lowlands are encompassed in scenic Bucks County, just west of Central New Jersey. The myriad of historic sites that maintain the integrity of the county’s heritage include several that specifically mark its founding by William Penn in 1682 — Fallsington and Pennsbury Manors.

Fast-growing Bucks County remains one of the most popular areas in the Delaware Valley, drawing newcomers to landscapes dotted by expansive farms and large estates or charming suburban townships. Although the entire county was once focused on agricultural activity, industry and commercial occupations now underline the local economy. The result combines the strength of diversity with bright new opportunities. Widely varied employers include such fields as scientific instrumentation and foodstuffs or apparel, ensuring the county’s position as one of the state’s leading economic drivers. The most aggressive economic activity has evolved in the southeastern sections, while the northern areas preserve the rustic charm of rural living. In spite of the proliferation of local commerce, many Bucks County residents are commuters to regional metropolitan centers.


An efficient and comprehensive system of roadways, railroads, and buses provides quick and convenient transportation throughout Bucks County. The network formed by the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Interstate 95, and several other major thoroughfares link the county to the Northeast’s bustling metropolitan centers. In addition to the services of excellent healthcare professionals in every major specialty, a wide variety of hospitals and medical centers combine personalized, compassionate care with technological advancements and state-of-the-art innovation. Among the healthcare centers serving the county are Doylestown Hospital, Bucks County Hospital in Warminster, Delaware Valley Medical Center, and Saint Mary’s Hospital in Langhorne, and the Lower Bucks Hospital in Bristol.

Home to many of the Eastern seaboard’s most noted school districts, Bucks County is also served by a number of parochial and independent private schools for a wide selection of learning environments and educational alternatives. Higher education plays an active and visible role in the area’s social and cultural life, including three vocational schools that serve the needs of area businesses. Two-year programs are available through Bucks County Community College in Newtown. Three other colleges provide a variety of continuing education courses and degree programs, including Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Philadelphia College of Bible in Langhorne, and Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science in Bensalem.

Bucks County residents not only live within commuting distance of international cultural centers, they have an entire world of artistic excellence and historic treasures just beyond the front door. As the art capital of the area, New Hope has provided inspiration to a long list of famous writers and artists. Early artists like Daniel Garber were later joined by such luminaries as Pearl Buck, George S. Kaufman, Moss Hart, Sid Pearlman, Oscar Hammerstein and James A. Michener. New Hope is still an artist’s haven, renowned for its 19th-century charm and filled with delightful craft shops and premier art venues.

Frequent enactment’s of key historical moments serve as brief introductions to the dramatic flair of such production theatres as Bristol Riverside Theatre, Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Newtown’s Langhorne Players, and Doylestown’s Dance Theatre of Pennsylvania. Museums, mansions, and historical sites abound. Highlights include Bryn Athyn Cathedral, the Pearl S. Buck House, the 300-year-old village of Historical Fallsington, the collection of amazing artifacts along The Mercer Mile, and Washington Crossing Historical Park.

Bucks County offers an abundance of diversions that ensure newcomers a wide variety of entertainment and activities for leisure hours. Quaint restaurants ranging from intimate to family-style serve delectable dishes in a warm atmosphere. For that special romantic weekend, visitors can relax in one of the famous bed and breakfasts or enjoy a leisurely tour of the famous vineyards and wineries. Some families find Sesame Place a popular destination, while others are more intrigued by the world-class carousel museum. Interactive science museums, nature centers, athletics, and community programs appeal to children of all ages.

The choices of outdoor recreational opportunities around the four seasons are virtually endless in Buck County, where vast state and county parks include the 5,000-acre Nockamixon State Park and its 1,450 acre lake. The Delaware River is a haven for fishermen and boaters. Hiking or biking miles of winding trails can be invigorating during any season. Horseback trails, sailing, balloon rides, and sail plane rides encourage exploration of Bucks County from a number of perspectives. When the sport is shopping, Bucks County offers quaint antique shops, fine galleries, and charming districts. Peddler’s Village and New Hope offer classic country settings, while the outlet mall of Franklin Mills features more than 200 top retailers.

Bucks County is graced by the rustic delights of cobblestone corners, tree-lined country roads, original covered bridges, and historic paths. Much of the county’s central and northern areas still reflect this rural heritage in open fields, vintage farms, and stately mansions. Newcomers will also discover a wide variety of newer construction throughout the charming towns and villages. While modern architecture dominates in certain areas, many new developments feature homes with “the look of the past,” from Colonial and Victorian to Federal. With its neighborly atmosphere and historical preservation, Bucks County uniquely mirrors a golden era from the past — one that is yours to enjoy and savor today.
