Philadelphia is surrounded by lively towns and communities that offer visitors everything from quaint main streets to picturesque orchards, and Chester County is home to two of the eight most exciting of them, writes Allie Volpe for Thrillist.com.
Phoenixville is the ideal town for every beer lover. There is an abundance of breweries to try out, including Root Down Brewing Company, Iron Hill Brewery, Conshohocken Brewing Company, Rebel Hill Brewing, Crowded Castle Brewing Company, Sly Fox Brewery, and Stable 12.
For those who enjoy something stronger, the beverages at Bluebird Distilling can pack a punch.
Meanwhile, Phoenixville has plenty to offer for those who do not imbibe, including the historic Colonial Theatre and the Schuylkill River Trail.
Some of its favorite restaurants include Avlo’s Greek Cuisine and Guatemalan Kitchen.
In addition to being home to the stunning Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square is known for its mushroom output and it has plenty of fresh ones to offer at places like the Woodlands at Phillips Mushroom Farms.
And that close proximity to fresh ingredients is a decided advantage to the chefs at Talula’s Table and Portabellos.
Beer lovers will also feel at home here, thanks to Braeloch Brewing and Kennett Brewing Company.
