Third State Brewery

Reviewed By mimberani - philadelphia

The place is really great: attractive, inviting, comfortable. (clean restrooms!) The Ale I had was great. They have outdoor seating. There are places nearby that will deliver food (until the law changes and allows breweries to sell food). The bar staff are very friendly. Sometimes that have music, (blues, maybe other genres too).

Bristol Riverside Theatre

Bristol Riverside Theatre (BRT) is a professional regional theatre in the historic district of Bristol Borough. The theatre, located in a renovated movie house, combines the excitement of a large stage with the intimacy of a 300-seat theater, along with outstanding lighting and sound technology. Since 1986, BRT has brought consistently acclaimed professional theater to Bucks County and maintained a long-term commitment to finding and developing new plays. Now in its 30th season, the theatre has grown to produce over 200 performances every year, including five Mainstage productions, three presented events, a summer music fest series, a play reading series, and a Christmas concert.

Third time here. Every seat is satisfactory. Theater is small and cozy, acoustics were good both prior visits. Not hard to get tickets a few weeks in advance. Price is fair and inexpensive compared to NYC.Hope to see you again soon! Thanks so much for the great review.

Roebling Museum

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

Like Batsto,NJ and even more so Smithville Park,NJ - Roebling can be added to a "must see" list for New Jersey history lovers.
1.2-square-mile town was created in the very beginning of 20th century completely from scratch by the company of a well known industrialist and architect John A. Roebling who emigrated to the United States in 1831 from Prussia. He and later also his sons constructed numerous bridges including Brooklyn Bridge, Niagara Falls, Washington Bridge and Golden Gate. Those were wire rope suspension bridges with Roebling-made wire cables. The museum exhibits explain the technology and design.
The plant no longer exists but the town still does.
Roebling Museum features informational movie and interesting exhibits showing the life of Roebling Family, the history of the plant, the engineering achievements of Roeblings. The tickets are $6 for adults. After visiting the museum one should go on a walking tour of Roebling. There are maps by the entrance door of the museum. I understand that sometimes the guided walking tours are offered but not on the August Saturday when our visit took place.
If you cannot walk through this interesting town it is even easier to drive following the map.

45th Street Pub Edgewater Park

Reviewed By Belle-Noel - London, United Kingdom

Since I was last here 2 years ago the price has creeped up but it's still reasonable considering how much one can eat.

We all got the crab legs and then a side of loaded fries - so delicious and tasty.

The only issue with the whole evening was they were short of staff and so we spent most of the time waiting to be served, or waiting for our food. The waitress was nice and was run off her feet but it was pretty appalling considering it was a Saturday night.

Saint Katharine Drexel Mission Center and Shrine

Reviewed By Roger I - The Woodlands, Texas

An inspirational location for Catholics as well as anyone who appreciates saints and examples of selfless service. The shrine has a very informative video about St Katharine's life plus museum pieces demonstrating the life of a truly remarkable woman and philanthropist. Spend some time in prayer in the shrine or Adoration in the chapel. You won't regret it.

Grand Marketplace

Reviewed By DiAlJo - Hockessin, Delaware

The Grand Market Place is an Indoor Flea Market. There are many different individually owned shops of varied quality and value of products. There is everything from a produce market to many thrift shops. There are definitely many curious and oddity shops such as Lucky's Unique Antiques that we visited based on NJ Oddities recommendation. There is plenty of parking and they are open seven days a week. This place is where you visit if you are looking for the unusual based on the shops in there. Don't go there looking for any high-end accommodations.

Boundary Creek Natural Resource Area

Reviewed By Lorraine D - Cinnaminson, New Jersey

Beautiful waterfront park with easy walking trails. Well maintained boardwalks and observation decks on the creek. "Blinds" are not as suitable as I think they meant them to be. Cutouts are designed for taller and shorter people, but if you are in-between, it can be uncomfortable to try and watch any wildlife for very long. Lots of different habitat for birds and other wildlife. Nicely maintained bathrooms are an asset. Good place for seniors to walk as the paths are smooth and level; great place for young children to ride bikes and run around safely. Very family friendly.

Historic Burlington Antiques and Art Emporium

Reviewed By Michael B - New Jersey

Stopped down in Burlington, NJ while headed to Mt. Holly. My GPS brought me across the Delaware River, then back over, and that was the shortest distance. This deceptive store front leads you to a massive (old) warehouse of Antiques, art and other goodies. These are not the "fine antiques" of some store, but an awful lot of thing to check out. These are booths of a variety of sellers. One huge display cabinet from many sellers. I would doubt it has air in the summer. There is a decent restroom and the entire place is nice and clean. An awful lot of items from vintage to true antiques. Pricing is good, some better, some are up there. Again it's from a variety of sellers, so they set the price. Not sure if the prices are rock solid.

Bristol Amish Market

Reviewed By John G - Greeley, Colorado

My daughter took me to visit the Amish market in Bristol, PA. This facility is in a large steel commercial building with a mix food vendors (Penn Dutch pretzels, cheese, fudge, kettle corn, meats, etc.), snack places and indoor and patio furniture. This is not a Lancaster style open market, but rather a very clean commercial building that houses many vendors.
A classic something for everyone place. Candles, spices and nick knack gift items in one niche. I remember seeing beef jerky, kettle corn, BBQ and even seafood. There are booths for deli items, baked goods (including a narly crumb cake) and other very unique local "farm" style food items. About half of the facility is devoted to furniture, both classic wood spartan what might be called "Shaker" style. The surprise to me was that the outdoor furniture was all made our of composite materials rather than cedar and pine.
Snack foods include brats, chicken, meat "pies", cheese steaks, soups, homemade lemonade, ice cream, donuts.
Stroll around and you will find something to take home. The facility may not be 100% family run, but it has heavy Pennsylvania Dutch influences.
