One of Pennsylvania’s most unique destinations can be found in Bucks County. Set in an 18th-century Colonial village, Peddler’s Village affords guests plenty to do with open-air shops, a variety of quaint restaurants, and a working 1922 antique carousel. Make it a true getaway and book your stay at the charming Golden Plough Inn. In addition, it’s also a place for recreation and entertainment with special events and festivals to make a trip here that is more than memorable.
Scarecrow Display and Competition
Now through October 30th
For eight fun-filled weeks, 150 scarecrows dot the brick pathways of the autumn-tinted Village. Some are inspired by famous characters, some are humorous, some are scary—but all of them are carefully handmade by Philly-area residents and organizations. Visitors are invited to vote on their favorite scarecrows through October 11th; the creators of the winning scarecrows receive prizes.
Outdoor Movie Night: Beetlejuice
Head down to Street Road Green for Peddler’s Village spooky screening of Beetlejuice under the stars. Don’t forget to bring your chairs, picnic blankets, and snacks.

Outdoor Family-Friendly Walking Tour: GhostDusters
Weekends now - November 7th
