Bucks County Residential Holiday Lights Driving Tour

by Louise Feder on December 15, 2020

In a year full of challenges and difficulties, we had to set aside many of our holiday traditions: the annual trip to Vermont, the “Eve Eve” dinner party we throw for friends, and putting out Santa’s cookies with grandparents. And I’m not complaining – I’m grateful every day for what we have and am looking forward to 2021. But in the meantime, I did wonder what Howie, our 4-year-old son, would…

Route 412 - A Fall Foliage Lover's Delight!

by Carl LaVO on September 19, 2016

Summer turns to autumn and memories return of going great lengths to see a maple tree change color. Like flying or driving from my former home in Gainesville, Fla. to New England to see the magnificence of tiny towns awash in the red, orange and yellows of the season. Having lived for many years in Bucks County since then, I now realize all that pulchritude is close at hand – right here. It’s just…

Michelle C.'s #BucksCountyMoment: Thompson Neely House

February 8, 2016

I was fortunate enough to be raised in beautiful Bucks County; New Hope to be exact. I have so many wonderful memories and special places that I still love to visit. My children were visiting over the Christmas holiday. We love to explore the beautiful back roads and I get to share my memories of growing up here. The day this photo was taken we decided to stop at the Thompson-Neely House &…
