Part of our January dining coverage, this article has West Chester’s best places to unwind after a hard day’s work.

West Chester isn’t the only dining and shopping destination in Chester County! There’s plenty to do, see and eat in Phoenixville!

4. Pete’s Produce, The Final Chapter

After more than 20 years, Pete Flynn has retired. Read our tribute to the iconic Street Road farmstand and learn what Pete’s up to next.

5. Serpentine Stunner

Another uniquely Chester County home, this one was built in the 19th century from locally sourced serpentine (that greenish stone found in buildings across the county, including at West Chester University).

6. Happy Hours on the Western Main Line

Our readers clearly love a good Happy Hour! This time, we highlighted specials in Devon, Wayne, Radnor, Malvern and more.

7. Springdale Farm

Another “Home of the Month,” the oldest continuously run farm in Pennsylvania spent its 300-year history in the possession of just two families.

8. Charity Datebook Calendar

Our annual Charity Datebook features events (both virtual and in-person) that support great local causes. There’s still time to get tickets for this year’s Taste of Phoenixville!

9. Bald Eagles of Conowingo

Every year, hundreds of bald eagles make their way to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland. Only 12 miles south of Chester County, we think it’s worth the drive to see our national bird in action!

10. Best Bets for Breakfast

It’s the most important meal of the day, and there’s so many ways to eat it! We gathered some of our favorite diners, cafés and bakeries from across County Lines country to help you start your day right.


From all of us here at County Lines, we wish you a very happy New Year. Thanks for reading, and here’s to 2023!
