Last year I wrote a post about the great opportunities for fun and entertainment in Bucks County. You can see that post with more information about some of the venues listed below. Since people have been asking me about events and concerts, as well as timing, here is the 2016 version with links to concert schedules and more.
While Tom and I love to travel in the winter, we absolutely love living in Bucks County in the summer! Actually the spring and fall are gorgeous too.
I call Bucks County ‘Eye Candy,’ especially for those who love nature. Solebury Township, where we live, also known as New Hope, is among the townships with the highest percentage of preserved land, so it is very green – filled with tree farms and horse farms.

Tom and I spent 2 months in 2015-2016 traveling the small but diverse country of Ecuador. On Tuesday of this week, as I was leaving the gym, a woman from my dance class asked, “Why did you choose Ecuador? It is an unusual choice.”
We loved the variety of experiences and enjoyed many of the local people we met in Ecuador.
