The Media Theatre

Professional theater in the heart of Delaware County

If you're driving out to Media, you’ll want to make time for a visit to Ridley Creek State Park, home of the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation – a living history museum that recreates life on a working 1770s Pennsylvania farm. Thirteen miles of trails pass through a variety of habitats throughout the central portion of the park and make for a great hike to view the fall foliage, cross-country ski or capture nature's renewal in the spring. Or take the reins and navigate on horseback almost five miles of trails.

If your plans to visit involve public transportation, arrive at the station with easy access to downtown to catch a matinee at The Media Theatre with a full season of Broadway musicals (both classics and new titles).

Linvilla Orchards

A 300-acre family farm dedicated to agriculture, entertainment and education

Before you head into downtown, you’ll also want to visit Linvilla Orchards — one of the oldest farms in the county — and pick your own fruit and vegetables, depending on the season. Fall and spring are among the best times as the harvest season brings family hayrides and, in spring, you may catch a baby farm animal.

In town, take a trolley ride through downtown and check out the PA Veterans Museum to see hundreds of artifacts, uniforms and living history replicas from every U.S. war.
