West Chester Travel Guide
Welcome to West Chester, PA!
Greek Revival and Victorian homes are a staple of the country landscape in West Chester, a southeast Pennsylvania town just west of Philadelphia. West Chester is home to QVC Studio, a multinational television shopping studio that can be toured for a behind-the-scenes look at live television broadcasts, product sourcing and testing, and the world of electronic retailing. Another interesting attraction is the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center, a facility that showcases a bounty of historic aircraft and explores the origins of rotary-wing aviation. Adventure-inclined travelers enjoy kayak and canoe trips on the Brandywine River, just south of town. Garrubbo Bazan Gallery and Holland Art House are venues that attract art enthusiasts with contemporary art exhibits in a variety of mediums. Perhaps West Chester's most alluring feature is its location—away from the bustle of Philadelphia but still relatively close to all the attractions.
This museum houses over 30 helicopters, autgiros and other rotary wing aircraft from their invention in 1928 through today.
This passenger railroad runs between West Chester and the village of Glen Mills, taking in historic sites and locations.
