A Ziptrip to Doylestown

Magnificent castles, specialty shops, exceptional dining and one-of-a-kind pieces of American history

When Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter traveled to The Vatican to visit Pope Francis, he presented the pontiff with a gift: a set of handcrafted Mercer tiles from Doylestown. The mayor is one of many who have discovered Doylestown through the legacy of Henry Mercer. The 19th-century archaeologist and industrialist built the cheerful borough its three most striking concrete landmarks, making it known locally as the Mercer Mile. It’s also the county seat of Bucks County with an array of independent shops and restaurants.
