If Media is affectionately called “Everybody’s Hometown,” then Tyler Arboretum should definitely be called “Everybody’s Backyard.” Just over the hill and through the woods of downtown Media, Tyler’s 650 acres of renowned plant collections, heritage and champion trees, historic buildings and 17 miles of hiking trails are continually explored by gardeners, hikers, botanists, birders and families with children. The arboretum’s tree houses and Butterfly House (both open seasonally) are especially popular attractions in the summer, and the ADA-compliant, paved Scenic Loop is a popular trail for hikers of all ages and abilities year-round. Take it from us — one visit to this adventure-filled “backyard” and you probably won’t want to go in for dinner.

here are not many places in Delco that are literally bushels of fun, but Linvilla is one of them. That’s because there’s almost always something in season that you can pick fresh from
their fields and serve on your dinner plate
that night. (Talk about farm to table!) Apples, cherries, sweet corn, strawberries, peaches . . . the list is almost endless. It’s like a season-long agricultural celebration, which is exactly why Linvilla celebrates each seasonal newcomer with a party, such as the Strawberry Festival
in June and the Peach Festival in August. It’s healthy, organic and environmentally friendly food and fun for wanna-be farmers of all ages.
