HERE ARE YOUR FIRST FOUR ZIPTRIPS TO GET YOU ON THE ROAD TODAY:
A Ziptrip to Ambler
A destination for those seeking cultural richness, all packed into one square mile.
The definition of a small town, Ambler is amazingly complete despite it's size, with a host of shops, restaurants, bars and special events that keep the streets bustling. Unassuming and unpretentious, Ambler has retained an historic gentility and independent spirit that are the pride of this tightly knit community. Stroll down Main Street towards Reiff’s Mill Road, and you will come to one of the oldest houses in town; the home of Mary Ambler (Mary Ambler led the rescue of the survivors of a train wreck in 1856 — and Ambler is named for her).
A Ziptrip to Doylestown
Castles, speciality shops, exceptional dining, & one-of-a-kind pieces of American history
When Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter traveled to The Vatican to visit Pope Francis, he presented the pontiff with a gift: a set of handcrafted Mercer tiles from Doylestown. The mayor is one of many who have discovered Doylestown through the legacy of Henry Mercer. The 19th-century archaeologist and industrialist built the cheerful borough its three most striking concrete landmarks, making it known locally as the Mercer Mile. It’s also the county seat of Bucks County with an array of independent shops and restaurants.
A Ziptrip to Kennett Square
Spend a day in the heart of the lush Brandywine Valley.
Kennett Square has a lot to offer visitors who make the 60-minute drive, including locally owned businesses, charming shops on a picturesque main street, farm-fresh eateries and small-town charm. Dubbed the Mushroom Capital of the World, Kennett Square and its surrounding farmland produce 60% of the nation’s mushrooms.
A Ziptrip to Wayne
Shop, dine and indulge in the arts in one of the region’s most sought-after addresses.
In 1940, movie director George Cukor set his Oscar-winning film, The Philadelphia Story, in the prosperous enclave of Wayne, selecting it to depict high-society America. With such distinction to its name, along with a location on Philadelphia’s clubby Main Line, Wayne carries itself with an elegant grace while maintaining a down-to-earth spirit.
