The city of Philadelphia has much to offer, but visitors to the region also appreciate the surrounding countryside.
This year, Peddler’s Village in bucolic, serene Bucks County, PA—about 40 miles from Center City—ranked number three among the most-visited attractions in the entire Philadelphia region, with two million visitors annually, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal. Only the Independence National Historical Park and Sugarhouse Casino drew more, at 4.6 million and four million, respectively.
According to the Journal, Philadelphia’s tourist sites drew a collective 21.4 million visitors in 2018. In Bucks County alone, the tourism industry neared an economic impact of almost $1 billion.
Situated on a 42-acre campus in the heart of historic Bucks County, Peddler’s Village is a countryside resort destination offering graceful 18th-century style architecture, lush gardens and winding brick walkways, diverse restaurants and eateries, distinctive independent retail shops, and seasonal festivals and events, inviting both day visits and overnight stays.
