Bucks County

Grandparents' Guide to Bucks County

When the parents are away, the grandparents and kids get to play. Grandma and grandpa can take the grandkids out for a weekend full of fun in Bucks County. From mini golf and ice cream to an indoor obstacle course, kids will be begging their grandparents to visit Bucks County again.

Everyone’s imagination will run wild during a fun morning or afternoon playing at the Bucks County Children’s Museum. Grandparents can watch on—or join in the fun—as their grandchild pretends to be a doctor, police officer or chef. Help your grandchild dig for fossils and race their very own K’Nex car.

Have some friendly competition during a game of mini golf at Golf Adventure. If it’s a rainy day, see who has the best bowling skills at the Brunswick Zone XL.

Head into the great outdoors! Core Creek Park offers plenty of walkways and bikeways to help you get active. Pack lunch to eat at one of the many picnic tables. After lunch, the kids can burn off steam at the playground. 

Stroll through the charming shopping and dining village of Peddler’s Village. Kids will love Giggleberry Fair, an indoor obstacle course with a Grand Carousel. Visit Skip’s Candy Corner for delicious homemade fudge and candies. Help the kids pick out a gift for mom and dad at one of the 60 unique shops and boutiques.  

Bring your grandkids to experience history at Washington Crossing Historic Park. See where George Washington crossed the Delaware River on Christmas night during the Revolutionary War.      

All aboard the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad. Take in the historic sites from a restored 1920s vintage train. Both kids and grandparents will enjoy this relaxing and scenic ride through Bucks County.

Meet Big Bird, Elmo and the rest of the gang at Sesame Place. Everyone will be singing and dancing along as the Neighborhood Street Party parade rolls down Sesame Street. Don’t miss the brand new show, The Magic of Art.

A day out with grandma and grandpa isn’t complete without ice cream. Uncle Dave’s Homemade Ice Cream at Shady Brook Farm has lots of flavors to please everyone’s taste buds. Enjoy a cup or cone and then pick your own fruit straight from the farm. Depending on the season, you may be able to pick apples, blueberries, strawberries or other fresh fruit.
