Usually no one jumps at the chance to go swimming with the fishes, but when you're floating above them in a tube, suddenly it doesn't sound so fishy. That's why this Adventure is going to make quite the splash. Enjoy a day of tubing on the Delaware River followed by an after party at Chambers 19 Bistro & Bar in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, including round-trip transportation from Manhattan.
We'll meet in Manhattan at West 45th Street and 11th Avenue and board an air-conditioned charter bus to Bucks County River Country, where we'll receive our tubes and a brief safety instruction before taking a five-minute ride on a yellow school bus right to the river put-in location. For the next three hours, we'll work up an appetite on the lazy float down the wide, scenic river. Be sure to bring some food in a small, plastic floating cooler, as we'll be able to bring this with us on the river. (Just take extra care not to litter!) And, since we won't want to lose anything—or anyone—bring along some long rope or twine to keep all belongings (and friends) together on the relaxing ride down the river.
Next, we'll head to local favorite Chambers 19 Bistro & Bar in Doylestown. We'll get to sip on a slew of beverages with $3 drink specials as a DJ provides party tunes, and enjoy a full barbecue buffet, including our choice of Philadelphia pulled pork, fried chicken, or vegetarian black bean burgers, along with potato salad, baked beans, biscuits, and jalapeño corn bread. With bellies full and arms spent from paddling, we'll hop back on the bus back to Manhattan. We can't promise fish sightings, but we're sure you and this full-day escapade will get along swimmingly.
