Doylestown, Pennsylvania’s motto is “Preserving the past, embracing the future” and as you drive through this beautiful town, it is obvious they have committed to this precept. The Mercer Museum and Fonthill (also known as Fonthill Castle) are two beautiful examples of preserving the past. Both buildings a carefully preserved pieces of the past, filled with antiques and collections of history that wow visitors every day. After you have visited one real castle, spending some time with the kids at the Kid’s Castle Park is a great end to the day. There is no better park where a kid’s imagination can run wild. The creativity and playground equipment delivers hours and hours of fun. At the end of the day, returning to your own castle the last thing you want to find is a pest sitting upon your throne. As humans we can feel possessive about things that are important to us. This is especially true about our homes and we aren’t about to share them with the critters and vermin of the neighborhood.
