Venture Afloat: A Day on the Delaware

Thursday, August 3, 2017 11:00 AM by Brooke Hillman

It's hard to define a day that's better than being surrounded by the natural beauty of Bucks County…nestled between sprawling country farms, historic towns and bridges within reach, and the flowing waters of the Delaware River beneath you. A day floating down the Delaware is an experience like no other and one of the best ways to take advantage of all that Bucks County has to offer. 

Finding ways to get children engaged in nature as opposed to electronic devices can be quite the feat. I have made it my mission this summer to help my children find ways to explore local parks, nature preserves and other outdoor recreational areas. One noteworthy place we recently visited was Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve in New Hope.

Visit Bucks County partnered with videographer and photographer Meredith Edlow on a funny and engaging video series that depicts the process of enduring the mundane of everyday life and daydreaming about escaping to the beautiful countryside in Bucks County.

From Elisa:

Bristol now boasts a pier with two large floating docks with 32 boat slips and a fishing area near its iconic covered Wharf area. Boaters can now dock and get a bite to eat or some cold drinks, shop along Mill Street or Radcliffe Street, or attend one of Bristol's many festivals!

Back in the spring of 2014, when my family and I were first led to New Hope while house hunting in Bucks Country, we were tourists. But, all it took was one sweep through this “small town with a big city feel” for us to go from tourists to tourists on a mission to make 18938 our new zip code.

Call me morbid, but I have always been fascinated by cemeteries. Maybe it’s the writer in me who is intrigued by the stories that lies behind each of the names carved into the polished stone, or the history nerd in me who is drawn to the dates marking the lives of those who walked the Earth at a different time...I’ve visited cemeteries from Europe to Bermuda and throughout the U.S. (I said it was okay to call me morbid). However, their history and their stories still don’t stack up to those found in one of my favorite graveyards – the Doylestown Historic Cemetery.
