PARX Casino and Racet
The only licensed casino in the area, Parx is home to horse racing, poker, slots, arcades, and all the table games a gambler could ask for. It used to be famous as a thoroughbred horse racing track, and was home of the 2004 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes champion, Smarty Jones. Now there is a permanent casino structure right next to the racetrack so you can get all your fixes in at one place. With more than 250,000 square feet of space, this massive complex is certainly large enough to get lost in.
Neshaminy State Park
One of the great parts about living in southern Pennsylvania is soaking up the warm weather seasons outdoors, or watching the leaves change in the fall. There is no better place to do it than at Neshaminy State Park. Located along the Delaware River, the park itself is more than 339 acres of hiking trails, picnic areas, swimming pools, and forested glens. It is one of the locals’ favorite places to spend an afternoon, and you will often find families enjoying the peace and quiet of nature or setting up a nice little afternoon picnic near the woods.
A Shopping First
Located within the city limits of Bensalem is one of the first malls to be constructed in the country, back in 1968. What might seem commonplace and cookie cutter to the people of today was a marvelous concept back then when you could have all of your favorite stores in one place. There are more than 120 shops, services, and eateries, a huge 24-screen movie theater, along with several restaurants on the outskirts of the property. You could easily spend a day here and burn a hole in your pocket with how much money you spend.
