Kennett Square may be the Mushroom Capital of the World, but the borough has much more to offer visitors. Nick Vadala chronicled the area’s dining, shopping, and sightseeing appeal for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
One of the quintessential Kennett experiences is Longwood Gardens. This horticultural oasis offers more than 1,000 acres of stunning flora, along with its illuminated fountain shows.
For a different approach to nature, visit the Anson B. Nixon Park, and for a shot of history, take one of the Kennett Underground Railroad Center Tours.
Kennett Classic Computer Museum, Barnard’s Orchard, and Kennett Flash performance space are just some of the other must-visit places.
Meanwhile, if you are hungry or thirsty, there are a wide range of great eateries and drinking establishments available, including Philter, Kennett Brewing Company, Galer Estate Vineyard and Winery, and Nomadic Pies.
For indulging your shopping urges, head to The Mushroom Cap for all things mushrooms; worKS for high-end artisan, designer, and vintage goods; and Square Pear Fine Art Gallery.
Finally, at the end of the day, relax at Kennett House Bed & Breakfast.
