Bucks County Attractions
Bucks County, Pennsylvania — home of the Carolers® Figurines — has both historical traditions and strong ties to the arts. With picturesque scenery and covered bridges, the county has long been a haven for people trying to get away from the cities of New York and Philadelphia. Much remains of the historical and artistic legacy and is available to visit today. For more information on Bucks County, please visit visitbuckscounty.com
