Round out the day with a few courses in West Chester's Dilworthtown Inn. The Inn itself dates back to 1754 - when James Dilworth built it as additional space for his large family. His son Charles applied for a tavern license in 1780 and opened up his doors to guests with a warm, inviting atmosphere that's still very much present today. Its unique gas lamps and roaring fireplaces make it the perfect spot for those who have spent the past few days appreciating the finer details.Read More >
