RAINY DAY GUIDE
Visiting on a rainy day? No worries! Bucks County is full of indoor fun for the young and young at heart. Spend a day with the arts in Doylestown, kid-friendly fun in New Hope or unleash your inner child in Lower Bucks County:
AN ARTSY DAY IN DOYLESTOWN
• Explore the Mercer Mile in Doylestown! View where Henry Mercer created his famous decorative tiles at Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. Artisans at this living history museum still produce tiles and mosaics in the style of Mercer’s original designs.
• Next door you can tour Fonthill Castle, Mercer’s 44-room concrete castle that houses his personal collection of tiles and prints.
• Then head to the Mercer Museum, housing Mercer's extensive collection of Americana artifacts. More than 50,000 pieces are displayed from floor to ceiling in this one-of-a-kind destination.
• Finally, catch a movie at County Theater, a 75-year-old art deco theater specializing in independent, art and foreign films.
KID-FRIENDLY FUN IN NEW HOPE
• Afterward, let the little ones explore and learn at the Bucks County Children’s Museum. Kids can build their own race car, “ride” in a hot air balloon or dig for buried treasure.
• For a relaxing end to the day, catch a kid-approved performance at the Bucks County Playhouse, a historic landmark in the theater community.
RELEASE YOUR INNER CHILD
• Just down the street, Brunswick Zone XL offers 48 bowling lanes, six billiards tables and the Lazer Zone Arena where everyone can feel young at heart.

• For just about any age, shape or size, Sky Zone Levittown offers the ultimate 3-D play experience! The world's first trampoline park, Sky Zone provides open jump SkySlam courts, fitness classes, Ultimate Dodgeball and the Foam Zone.
