A Ziptrip to Phoenixville

Boasts an artsy, low-key vibe that attracts visitors craving a relaxing day with a creative twist

At the intersection of the Schuylkill River and French Creek, Phoenixville blends historic charm with a modern mindset. Phoenixville’s name is derived from the renowned Phoenix Iron & Steele company. For nearly 200 years, the company helped forge a town as well as the nation. The Phoenix Company Foundry, built in 1882, is now home to the Schuylkill River Heritage Center. This Center is a historic gateway to northern Chester County and provides information about places of interest to visit throughout the region, including great restaurants, live music venues, eclectic art displays and historic buildings.

Black Lab Bistro & Bakery

With so much creativity flowing, Phoenixville has quite the palette, including two BYOBs. Black Lab Bistro & Bakery is known for its crab-cake benedict and decadent butterscotch French toast on a menu that changes often, and Majolica specializes in seasonally inspired cuisine.

And even the pizza scene is an art. Vecchia Pizzeria imports ingredients from Naples, Italy, then wood-fires in an oven made of stone from Mount Vesuvius. The Regina Margherita is a must, its generous helping of sauce topped with mozzarella di bufala and fresh basil leaves.
