The County Links
on the left will keep you specifically in or near West Chester, the Brandywine Valley and Chester County, Philly Country
, southeastern PA. We add new listings and links on a regular basis.
Chester County, a significant part of the Brandywine Valley, carefully guards the heritage of its open space, old houses, cherished landmarks and giant sycamores. Travelers who have been to many different parts of the United States say they'll put this countryside against anything they have seen.
One thing that strikes visitors about this small river valley is the abundance of quaint villages and hamlets dating back to the 1700's that are still intact. Another is how narrow asphalt roads remain the rule for motorists searching for timeless treasures. Many comment how they get the feeling that this is a special valley, nurtured with great caring of a rural landscape.
If you have refined taste you will appreciate the unique attractions, wonderful food and wine, lively events and scenic rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley, a charming PA countryside destination. The people invite you to "experience the pleasures of the South of France, just a little west of Philly." And we think you will!
Longwood Gardens consists of over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in Kennett Square in the Brandywine Creek Valley. It is one of the premier botanical gardens in the United States and is open to visitors year-round to enjoy exotic plants and horticulture (both indoor and outdoor), events and performances, seasonal and themed attractions, as well as take part in educational lectures, courses, and workshops.

With the beuatiful weather it's time to be thinking "outdoors"! So we put together something for you called our PA Hiking page. It's basically a sampling of the information you can find in any PA county under our "What to do" category. After tasting the sample start hitting the various regions and counties. One of our favorite things is "rafting" in Fayette County. You'll find Fayette County in southwestern PA. If the names of the counties intimidate you try finding things by towns. This feature will take you to the right county. Try it! You can't get lost and you will be pleasantly surprised.
