You have to visit the Brandywine Valley! If you are visiting Philadelphia on business and have a day or two spare, there is simply no better way to spend it then out in the Brandywine Valley.

The rolling hills and breathtaking wildflowers that line the road make for an unforgettable scenery. The stretch of road that follows the river is only 12 miles long, but there is so much to do if you have to time.

Here are four reasons why you should visit the Brandywine Valley:

 

The Brandywine Valley Wine Trail

When you say the words ‘Brandywine Valley’, you think wine. Maybe that’s because wine is in the name, or maybe it’s because we think about wine too much.

Anyway, the area is famous for its incredible wineries. That’s why, at Celebrity Limo, we’ve put together our bespoke wine trail.

We cater for bachelorette parties, corporate parties, birthday parties and much more. Every tour can be designed for half a day or a full day and comes with your own luxury, chauffeur-driven car. Not only does that mean you can enjoy the wine trails without worrying about a designated driver, but you will be in the ultimate luxury throughout the day.

The tours also include entry to all the wineries and we can cater for any sized group.

 

The Famous Brandywine River

The other thing that comes to mind when you hear ‘Brandywine Valley’ is the Brandywine River (also known as Brandywine Creek.)

Native-Americans used the river as a source of food by fishing and hunting the surrounding areas. They had many names for the river, including Wauwaset, Wawasiungh, and Wawassan.

As part of Celebrity Limo’s tours, you can visit the Brandywine River Museum. Situated in a 19th Century Gristmill, it hosts a collection of American art featuring the works of N.C Wyeth among many others.

 

The Breathtaking Scenery

The Brandywine Valley is one of those places you could spend weeks in and still have your breath taken away every time you look around. The beautiful wildflowers and striking deep green trees will blow you away.

 

Mt. Cuba Center

Mt. Cuba Center is an amazing botanical garden hidden in the Brandywine Valley. It’s a conservation project that is protecting 500 acres of vital natural lands in Delaware. Created by Lammot du Pont Copeland and his wife in the 1930s, this unique experience is not to be missed. Perfect if you need to get away from hustle and bustle of Philadelphia center.

If you’re visiting Philadelphia on business and you want some time to unwind there’s no better place than the Brandywine Valley. Whether you want to go on a wine tour or just hire a luxury, chauffeur-driven car and experience the area yourself, then Celebrity Limo have got you covered.
