NECA Post-Philadelphia Tour

Historic Brandywine Valley, PA
Valley Forge, Longwood Garden and Winterthur
October 3-8, 2018

Dear NECA Members:
We know you’re looking forward to experiencing the rich history of Philadelphia while at the NECA Show in September. Please join your peers to finish the week exploring the surrounding area, rich in beauty and historical significance. Called “the England of Pennsylvania” by Oliver Wendell Holmes, this Brandywine Valley tour offers a chance to decompress and enrich your Pennsylvania experience.

Your hotel for the 3-nights, Delaware's Montchanin Inn, is a unique collection of historic houses that once formed a village. Today, the inn offers 28 individual rooms and suites, each with its own charac-ter and features. Since there are limited rooms in each category, as well as certain bed types, we en-courage you study and send in the Reservation Form now to secure your first choice.

Your itinerary mixes historical sites, gardens and museums. Known as America’s Garden Capital, Philadelphia will be in its glory as autumn arrives. In the environs of the Brandywine River Valley, we’ll take advantage of the season to enjoy plenty of outdoor visits. Valley Forge encampment will re-mind us of George Washington’s winter of hardship, and Hagley Powderworks will motivate those who are new to any endeavor, as the storied DuPont family once was. We’ll enjoy museums filled with art of famous natives to the area (like Andrew Wyeth) and curated collections treasured for generations.

We hope you can join us for this moment in time to capture a sense of the rich history of Pennsylvania’s Brandywine Valley!
