Wharton Esherick was a sculptor who worked primarily in wood, readily extending his unique forms to furniture, furnishings, utensils, interiors, buildings and more. His motto, "if it isn't fun, it isn't worth doing," is evident in the joyful expression of his work, inviting the eye and the hand. A National Historic Landmark for Architecture, his hilltop studio/residence, with more than 300 of his works on exhibition, has been preserved much as it was when the artist lived and worked there. The Museum is open to the public through guided tours for which reservations are required.
This museum is an incredible gem, worth visiting! Small group tours are available. This was the home he built. Hard to describe the woodworking here but it is priceless. He integrated the woods, trees, colors along with his carvings and sculptures. Plan to spend at least 3 hours for the tour and exploring!

The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center, located in the land of industry innovators in the Philadelphia region, is the nation's premier aviation museum devoted exclusively to helicopters. Established in 1996, the nonprofit organization collects, restores and displays rotary-wing aircraft, including over 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros and convertiplanes.
But I had a good time as well. It's big enough to stop at and enjoy an hour or so leaning all about helicopters and there role in aviation.
Our granddaughter wanted to stop because they have a V-22 Osprey unit, which is what here daddy takes care of for the marines

Nestled along the Pickering Creek in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, the Mill at Anselma is an extraordinary artifact of 250 years of Chester County’s industrial heritage. The Mill retains its original Colonial-Era power train, as well as multiple layers of industrial equipment ranging from the late 1700s to the mid 1900s. Guided tours of the Mill are offered Thursday through Sunday between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. The Mill at Anselma is still a fully operational grist mill that produces stone-ground Bread Flour, Pastry Flour, Dark Roasted Cornmeal, and Buckwheat. There are monthly milling demonstrations from April through December as well as monthly special events.
Our visit to this historic mill site was the highlight to our weekend jaunt through the area. The attitude level here is low-key, to be sure, but befits the site nicely. I'd suggest a leisurely stroll around the grounds in addition to the guided tour. (I prefer to have a look around BEFORE the tour, so that I can ask the docent to explain some of the stuff that I might have questions about. And he was indeed well-versed and knowledgeable.) Check their website in advance: they have interesting programs scheduled on some weekends.

People's Light, a professional, not-for-profit theatre in Chester County, makes plays drawn from many sources to entertain, inspire, and engage our community. We extend our mission of making and experiencing theatre through arts education programs that excite curiosity about, and deepen understanding of, the world around us. These plays and programs bring people together and provide opportunities for reflection, discovery, and celebration. Founded in 1974, we produce eight to nine plays each season, in two black box theatres with 340 and 160 seats respectively, mixing world premieres, contemporary plays, and fresh approaches to classic texts for our 7-Play, Discovery, and Teen Series.
I have really enjoyed being a season ticket holder for the past few years. Peoples Light and Theatre has something for everyone; original plays, musicals, drama, classics. Students can attend for reduced prices when tickets are purchased the day of the show. They are really accommodating to season ticket holders who need to change dates. Check them out!

Struble Trail in Downingtown is a classic. Paved in its entirety, it's easy to ride a bicycle on, push a stroller, walk or yog. It's definitely not smooth enough to rollerblade, however. Shady in spots and sunny in others, during a fall afternoon or morning, it's the perfect opportunity to watch leaves falling while catching up with a friend. This trail also feels very safe - like, you can yog alone and not feel like a raper is hiding out waiting for you (although, I always prefer to bring my dog just in case).

At Bridge Street Chocolates, we believe that quality chocolate is a necessary luxury. Located in historic Phoenixville Pennsylvania, our handmade chocolates create perfect flavor combinations that will delight your palate, and leave you longing for one more taste!
We went into the store to see what they had to offer and for almost $20, I got about a half pound of candy. I'm not sure if they make the candy there or not but I just thought it was too much. Even the rack of cards were expensive.

This small place of worship is famous for its stained glass window depicting George Washington at prayer.
A place of quiet reflection that blends religion with patriotism. You can pray and think about those who sacrificed much to birth this country. Much to look at and think about.

The 658-seat Colonial Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Phoenixville, Pennsylvania at 227 Bridge Street. Opened in 1903, the Colonial is the last surviving of four theatres once existing in the borough and is the only theatre of its kind in Chester County. In its early days, the Colonial was home to live stage shows, vaudeville acts and musicals including appearances by Harry Houdini and Mary Pickford. Real movie buffs know that the Colonial was featured in the 1958 science fiction classic, "The Blob," starring Steve McQueen and filmed in and around Phoenixville. The theatre is owned and operated by the Association for the Colonial Theatre (ACT), a nonprofit corporation, which re-opened the theatre in 1999. The Colonial's programming includes art and independent films seven nights a week, classic films, cult & horror films, programs for young audiences, live concerts, and community events. ACT is committed to the full restoration of the Colonial as a cultural arts center.
We arrived early to see the 9:15pm movie titled Wind River. I was surprised and pleased to know that the theatre was mostly run by volunteers (the lady that took our tickets, the gentleman and lady that were sweeping the floor were volunteers).The theater was...MoreThank you! We're glad that you enjoyed your experience at the Colonial and we hope that you will join us again in the near future. Take care! Brendan Carr Marketing Director Association for the Colonial Theatre

Regal have tried to up their game, now that there's competition nearby, but it hasn't really worked. What Regal have done is upgrade the seats to be more comfortable, in an attempt to compete with the likes of Movie Tavern in Exton, but they haven't added a food service - just sticking with the overpriced concessions. This means there are now fewer seats and, since you now have to pre-book them, gone are the days of the old spontaneous cinema trip. In my mind the Regal falls between two target audiences. It's no good for those that want a "dinner and movie" experience, but neither is it a great "full audience" experience like it used to be, which is a shame. Let's see how this pans out over the next 12 months...

Took the grandkids out for Popcorn, and the restaurant even had "Cars3" in the place!
They enjoyed the service, our waiter was awesome, and the movie had NO Commercials!
Definitely will be coming back!
Also, like that I can reserve our seats (Reclining !) ahead of time!
Will definitely be back!
