There was a major update to the maps on April 13, 22:14 HST. This will only be  relevant if you are downloading the maps to your GPS. If you have downloaded maps to your GPS already, please re-download again as I have found that on the old maps, the routes will not be followed on some GPS's. The GPS may decide parts of the routes on it's own. If you have no time, I will down load for you in Lambertville.

Mercer Museum, Lunch in Doylestown, Washington Crossing State Park
It's Monday but the Mercer Museum is open. Henry C. Mercer was an eccentric chap to say the least. He collected over 30,000 hand tools of everyday life. He also worked in concrete in the late 1800's to early 1900's. certainly a pioneer in working with building in concrete. His legacy is still standing in the form of The Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle. You'll be amazed by the amount of items collected as well as the concrete structure which houses all the artifacts. Not enough time in the day to visit both the Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle(his home). They are both in Doylestown and a visit to Fonthill Castle is recommended for those that have interest on the "No Driving" Wednesday. Fonthill Castle does require an appointment for a guided tour.

After a visit to The Mercer Museum, plan on lunch in Doylestown. There are several restaurants nearby and this would be a good opportunity to visit Doylestown.

After a relaxing lunch let's drive to Washington Crossing State Park. It's a nice drive through Bucks County. Imagine being at the location on December 25, 1776 crossing the Delaware River and attacking and winning over the Hessian Troops in the battle of Trenton which would prove to to be the turning point in the American Revolutionary War.

After visiting The Washington Crossing State Park which is on the New Jersey side of the Delaware river, we will go to The Washington Crossing Historical Park(which is on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware river) to visit Bowman's Hill Tower for a great view of the surrounding area.

Leisurely drive back to the hotel on the river road.
