Greetings from Lumberville, PA - Blog Post from the WOW! Travel Club

"I’m in a different world.

But I’m only 47 miles from Philadelphia and 70 miles from Manhattan. So idyllic, it feels like a million miles from anywhere. [...] Legend has it that Washington did NOT sleep here at The Black Bass because the proprietors of the Inn were loyal to the Crown. Too bad for Washington, because it’s a beautiful place! Comfortable suites, award-winning restaurant and a perfect location for exploring this lovely part of America."

Bucks County Restaurant Week 2018

Sunday, April 29th - Saturday, May 5th

Bucks County now has a countywide restaurant week — a first for the suburban county. Several of Bucks County's towns have their own restaurant weeks throughout the year, but this is the first countywide restaurant week, encompassing all 604 square miles of the suburban county, according to Paul Bencivengo, vice president of Visit Bucks County.

"Bucks County has an amazing culinary and beverage scene," Bencivengo said. "We see food as a travel motivator, and the timing fits perfectly with all the breweries, wineries and distilleries now open in Bucks County." Bucks County Restaurant Week also leads right into tourism season, or April 29 through May 5, he said.
