In addition to being a hotbed for early American history, the Brandywine Valley also offers visitors a chance to enjoy the many pleasures nature can offer, writes Charlie Burchfield for The Bradford (Pa.) Era.
While gazing over the gorgeous vistas at the 1,727-acre Marsh Creek State Park, visitors can try their luck at fishing for muskies. The 535-acre lake at the state park is rated as one of the top lakes for muskies in Pennsylvania.
Trout fishing at Valley Creek is also an option. Here, trout anglers are sure to find exceptional opportunities and can head home with some pretty impressive catches.
Also, Longwood Gardens offers 1,077 acres of beautifully maintained plants that attract more than a million visitors each year. Each acre provides a special kind of beauty, including stunning fountains, a conservatory with 4,600 different plants and trees, and a 600-foot Flower Garden Walk.
One of the newer additions, Meadow Garden, offers 86 acres that feature a wide variety of native plants. It has also become home to a number of bluebirds, which have taken up residence in the provided nesting boxes.
