Fall in Doylestown is the leaves changing colors before your eyes on morning bike rides along the bike path. It’s the crisp air you feel when pumpkin picking at Hellerick’s Family Farm or The Market at Del Val. And it’s the freshly brewed pumpkin coffee at The Zen Den to warm you up after being outside.
Fall is Doylestown is simply the best! Ready to experience it for yourself? As a local, here is my guide for where to go and what to do this fall in Doylestown.
Having breakfast at Cross Keys Diner is a must. Open 7 days a week, this family owned breakfast spot serves all of your favorite a.m. classics in a quaint small-town setting. Stop in for specials like their Pumpkin Ricotta Pancakes.
Work off your morning pancakes with a bike ride. There are more than 25 miles of biking trails located alongside beautiful Bucks County fall foliage.
Let’s take a trip to the farm! Hellerick’s Family Farm is 18-acres of fun. There are 45+ seasonal activities for children and adults. While you could just explore the pumpkin patch, I would recommend making an afternoon out of it. Get lost in the corn maze, take a hayride and visit all the farm animals!
If you’re interested in apple picking, The Market at DelVal is the place for you. The Market is a beautiful rustic barn surrounded by fields and fields of apple trees. They host a number of fall events including concerts, wine tastings, bonfires, and moonlit wagon rides through the orchards!
Tired out from an afternoon in the pumpkin patches and orchards? it’s time to hit up one of the many charming coffee shops in town. A personal favorite is The Zen Den. With live music throughout the day and cute outdoor seating, you just can’t beat it!
Before dinner, spending some time walking around town. A few stores you don’t want to miss are Serendipity, The Doylestown Bookshop, Evolution Candy, and SirenRecords.
Ready for a warm meal? The culinary scene is for sure one of Doylestown’s highlights. 86 West Restaurant & Bar is a popular dinner destination for locals and visitors alike. Taste sushi, sashimi and small plates in this chic and modern restaurant. Save room for dessert and try the Cinnamon Funnel Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream.
If you’re looking for a more upscale dining option, I recommend Slate Bleu Restaurant. They specialize in delicious fine French cuisine. It’s a perfect restaurant for a date night with low lighting and a romantic atmosphere.
One last alternative for dinner is Conquering Cuisine, a hands-on, state-of-the art cooking studio. Participants pair-up to prepare dishes unique to that evening’s class. After cooking up a storm, enjoy the fruits of your labor with complimentary red or white wine.
Fall is a beautiful time of year to experience everything Bucks County has to offer! Take a trip to Doylestown for classic fall fun, delicious dining options and special small-town shops.
