DVAROC Spring Tour – Bucks County – Saturday, May 26th
So far, it’s been an unusual spring, but that hasn’t stopped us from enjoying our Alfas. With summer quickly approaching, it’s time for our May tour.
This year, we’ll return to the Delaware River valley. Like last year, we’ll travel through beautiful Bucks County, back and forth from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, through some lovely covered bridges and finish in Doylestown for lunch. Although the locale is the same, the route is quite different, and will take you to some new places. Along the way, we’ll make some stops to stretch our legs and enjoy some sites and towns. Expect the total length to be about 60 miles and the drive to take about three hours (including stops).
The tour will leave at 9:30am, from the parking lot at Washington Crossing Park, in Pennsylvania. Refer to the map below:
From there, we’ll drive through Bucks County, Washington Crossing, and New Hope, crossing into Lambertville, New Jersey. Our first stop will be Bulls Island state park, where we’ll cross the foot bridge into Pennsylvania, reversing our path from last year. Then, it’s up to Frenchtown, this time approaching it from the New Jersey side. We’ll take a little break there, to stretch our legs, get some gas, if necessary, and enjoy the town. From there, we’ll cross back into Pennsylvania and drive down, along River Road. Before we get to New Hope, we’ll turn inland and head to Doylestown for lunch at the Station Taphouse. After lunch, I’m hoping we can get a bunch to walk down to the Mercer Museum where they are featuring an exhibit on the Racing History of Bucks County.
Lunches at the restaurant will be from the menu, so no need to pre-pay or feel limited to selections. There is no cost for the tour. Cost for lunch and/or museum visits is up to you.
If you want to attend, please RSVP to Bob Brady at: 302.420.6529 or preferably, firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 18th .
If we get enough participants, I might even break up the tour into two groups, with slightly different directions – just to mix it up a bit!
Hope you can make it!!
