Attend the great pumpkin carve in October, it's amazing! Prior to this, had only seen record-setting pumpkins on TV. I can only imagine how cool this and how huge the carved pumpkins are for kids when it was so amazing to me. People are so talented!

A friend and I attended the annual Chadds Ford Days. At $10 each, admission was pricey for the paltry selection of craft vendors. The band was good and there was a good variety of food vendors. However, I am not a fan of having to purchase tickets to get food and drink as opposed to paying the vendor directly. Have... More

Chadds Ford Winery is a fabulous local winery that makes wonderful, though a bit pricey, wines. They have lots of fun social events, such as music and food festivals, in addition to everyday wine tastings. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

We were in Chadds Ford and discovered that many of the sites were closed on Monday and Tuesday (when we were there). We happened to be driving by the historical society on Tuesday morning and saw cars out front so stopped by. To our delight, there was a private tour and they graciously allowed us to join. The tour of... More

Enjoyed learning how Chadds Ford, PA got its name and viewing the house where John Chadd ran a tavern. There is not much to see in the museum so our visit was brief.

It is THE place around Chadds Ford to learn about our history. It has old-old stuff, and fairly new stuff. Always a good time

They pay such beautiful homage to a time forgotten by most. The scenery is of course beautiful made exquisite by period homes. Great for educating kids about a different time.
