Doylestown is a great walk-able town. With all the shops, restaurants and museums we have, your tootsies can get quite a workout. But thanks to a new form of town-based public transportation that’s starting up in mid-September, you can give your feet a rest when needed and still visit the sites you want to see.
A “cultural loop” bus is set to shuttle visitors to some of the town’s favorite destinations – from Mercer and Michener museums in the South part of Doylestown to Henry Mercer’s castle-like home, Fonthill, on the outskirts of town. (For a full list, click on the above link.)
It’s scheduled to start during the weekend of the Doylestown Arts Festival, Sept. 15, and continue weekends through Oct. 28. Service then will resume next spring. It’ll be free (best part!) and pick-ups at all the locations will be every 20 minutes. At this point, hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
The Cultural Loop stop closest to Hargrave House will be at the County Theater on East State Street. Even if you’re not tired, it’s still a great way to do a little sightseeing and continue to discover Doylestown’s charm.
