Say you work in NJ
state government or one of the big Mercer County
Do you really want to
live on your job's doorstep? You need a place that's far enough
away to seem different, a quiet, green spot where you can relax and
forget about the day's pressures. But it can't be so far away as to
give you headaches, either.
Morrisville, PA. We're moments across the river from Trenton and a
reasonable drive from Philly. When you live here it's easy to jump
on a train for New York, too.
But you might not
want to since Bucks County, PA has access to some of the region's
best arts and culture. Yes, there's always something to excite your
senses here, stuff that will get your heart pumping and your mind
racing. Bucks County has inspired generations of artists, and its
cultural treasures are waiting for you.
Here's a brief taste
of the arts, music, and culture nearby when you live in
Collector -- Okay, so it's not strictly a live music
venue; it's better than that. This groovy Art Deco building in
Bordentown, NJ is one of the area's best record stores (remember
those?), the place to find the stuff Mom threw out or the goodies
you didn't know you wanted. And there are frequent live gigs here.
Check their site to find out what's in store; anybody can play a
bar, after all, but record store people have taste.
Square -- This massive Irish Pub in Bordentown, NJ has an
enormous drinks list (including rotating craft beers), tasty
gourmet food and frequent live music, from traditional
Irish seisuns to groovier stuff. Follow them on
social media to find out more.
Playhouse -- Legendary playwright Moss Hart helped rescue
this burnt-out mill in the late 1930s and helped turn it into
Pennsylvania's official state theatre. Countless Broadway
productions have started here, most recently Terence
McNally's Mothers & Sons. High-powered New
York producer Robyn Goodman now runs the place, and the new season
promises the best and brightest in writing and acting.
Manor -- William Penn wrote, 'A country life I like best
for myself and my children.' He made it happen at Pennsbury Manor,
his sprawing 17th-18th century estate in Morrisville. The house has
been refurbished to approximate Penn's time, and is an incompable
resource for information on the Penn family and life in early
Pennsylvania. Check their site for information on the estate's fun
all-ages programming. Not into history? Don't worry; Pennsbury
Manor is one the region's best spots to commune with wildlife. Walk
the grounds, relax, and enjoy.
Washington Crossing Historic Park -- George
Washington's army set off from here early on Christmas morning 1776
to attack the British at Trenton -- America's decisive victory
early in the Revolutionary War.
