You know what’s one of the best things about Bucks County? You can live here all of your life and still find hidden gems to stumble across, and by stumble, I literally mean there is something you walk or drive past every day that you didn’t even know existed. From cute, trendy shops and comforting cafes, to historic sites and new craft breweries, there’s always something new for you to experience.

When I was a kid back in the 1970s, there was a rumor that a haunted farmhouse on Dark Hollow Road would appear in the night and disappear during the day. You certainly didn’t go near the place at night; it was probably not a good idea to go there during the day either in case your car broke down and you found yourself stranded there at dusk.

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.

In 1776, General George Washington and his army marched through parts of Bucks County, but before they reached New Jersey for the historic Battle of Trenton, they had to make their way across the Delaware River through a wintry mix of snow and ice. Though these men had just experienced an incredibly tough loss in New York just a couple months prior, they never gave up. If they hadn’t persisted through the harsh Northeastern winter, then one of the most monumental battles of the Revolutionary War would not have been won by Washington’s army, and the cause for freedom may have been lost.

Bucks County is home to several parks, nature and recreation centers. If you are looking to spend a day outdoors, here are a few suggestions where you can pack a picnic, hit the road and get your paddle on: 

Amid the Antiques

It’s no secret that Bucks County is home to a considerable amount of history. If you take a drive there, you are bound to pass an old barn, a historic home or a covered bridge. There are remnants of yesteryear scattered all throughout the area and I’ve always enjoyed taking a look at the past. As a recent homeowner, I am looking for a few unique furnishings, so I asked my parents to accompany me on an antique tour of some spots in Lower and Central Bucks County.

Capturing Aerial Images of Bucks County

I needed to get a bird’s eye view of landmarks and points of interest in Bucks County. This is possible with technology using unmanned aerial vehicles, a.k.a., drones, but I wanted to show a different view of Bucks County by getting high in the sky while taking video, 360 Virtual Reality panoramas and photos of locations in Bucks County. Since some areas are no-fly zones for drones, the only solution to capture these images was to take them from a helicopter.
