Forbes: World-Class Mushrooms, Small-Town Charm Draw People to Kennett Square
Mushrooms that trump worldwide competition and a number of charming destinations in and around town are putting Kennett Square on the must-visit list for tourists who enjoy small towns and great cuisine, writes Michael Alpiner for Forbes.
In addition to producing half of the nation’s mushrooms, the Mushroom Capital of the World justifies its reputation with a number of related events. These include the recently held Mushroom Festival that attracted nearly 100,000 tourists and the upcoming Mushroom Cap half-marathon.
Kennett Square is also known for its quaint culture and proximity to a number of attractive destinations. For example, the walking tour explores the town’s historic district covering 36 sites of eclectic interests, ranging from crafts to historic homes.
There is also the Kennett Underground Railroad Center, which was a stop for Harriet Tubman as she headed north with groups of escaped slaves.
Longwood Gardens offers another fun stop with its stunning array of plants, flowers, and water fountains.
During the summers, the pop-up beer garden and eating station The Creamery offers live music, craft beer, food trucks, and lawn games.
