Spectacular scenery. Intriguing history. Home to renowned artists, musicians, filmmakers, actors, and authors. Bucks County beckons. Carl LaVO, the award-winning journalist, takes the reader on another journey through some of the most interesting, scenic, and historic spots in his second volume of Bucks County Adventures.

From the famous, like Lafayette's emotional farewell tour of Bucks to the place where Ben Franklin flew his famous kite in Bensalem. Along the way, you'll visit interesting, obscure, and rather odd sites, each with its own history to tell. Like the grandest estate ever built in the county, and the Upper Bucks village where the sun seldom shines. 

If you are looking for a guide to the county's wonders, want to read about its historic places and people, or just enjoy beautiful photography, you'll find Vol. 2 of Bucks County Adventures the book for you.
