Downingtown is a borough in Chester County, Pennsylvania, west of Philadelphia. Change things up with a short trip to Jenkins Arboretum & Garden in Devon (about 30 minutes away). Spend the 15th (Sun) exploring nature at Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. There's lots more to do: ponder the design of Longwood Gardens, grab your bike and head to Chester Valley Trail, take an in-depth tour of Chester County Historical Society, and admire the majestic nature at Marsh Creek State Park.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Downingtown road trip planning site.

New York City to Downingtown is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. Traveling from New York City in July, plan for slightly colder nights in Downingtown, with lows around °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
