A Ziptrip to Kennett Square

Spend a day in the heart of the lush Brandywine Valley

Kennett Square has a lot to offer visitors who make the 60-minute drive. That includes locally owned businesses, charming shops on a picturesque main street, farm-fresh eateries and small-town charm. Dubbed the Mushroom Capital of the World, Kennett Square and its surrounding farmland produce an astounding 60% of the nation’s mushrooms. Right in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, Kennett Square’s idyllic setting is a great destination for a Ziptrip beyond Philadelphia’s city limits.
