Local food. Local theater. Local products. We’re paying more and more attention to things that come directly from our own communities. Why shouldn’t your insurance agent be local, too?
Everyone hates feeling like a number, and we promise never to make you feel that way. We’re local. We live here, in the same community that you do. We understand the unique dangers that face our town: How the backroads tend to curve sharply, or how slippery that hill outside of town can be in the winter. Our understanding makes it easier for us to help you avoid needing to make a claim in the first place or how to clean up afterwards.
Here are some local places to find the perfect Christmas tree this holiday season! For more information check out the original article posted by WestChester.Patch.com by clicking here.
Wiggins Christmas Trees: A family operation since 1972, Wiggins Christmas Trees are grown locally in Chester County. They supply both pre-chopped, at a lot located at 1301 West Chester Pike, and cut-your-own trees. Though cutting down your own tree is a bit more expensive — $45 versus as little as $19.95 for a pre-cut tree — it may provide a memorable family experience. The cut-your-own lot is located at 1257 Westtown Thronton Rd.
Tricolor Tree Farm: Tricolor Tree Farm is located just outside West Chester — 1480 Hall Rd. — and offers cut-your-own Christmas trees. Not only can you cut down your own tree, but there’s hot chocolate, provided saws and weekend hayrides. The farm is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until dark.
Buck Run Evergreen Farms: Buck Run Evergreen Farms, 1479 Hall Rd., has a lot where you can buy your own trees. It’s open on weekends until Dec. 23.
Why Go: Choose your race. Race as a three-member team through the downtown West Chester loop or race as an individual runner and attempt to trump the relays to win it all. A portion of this race benefits the Great Guys Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to Bringing Hope Home by financially supporting families battling cancer in the Philadelphia area.
Why Go: Enjoy an all-ages cast of over 80 dancers and actors create and bring to life The Nutcracker. As the narrative unfolds, comical high jinx, holiday fun, and lavishly genteel romance transpire against a backdrop of antique decors and picturesquely animated action. All of the elements combine to make Brandywine Ballet’s The Nutcracker a favorite among local audiences.
Why Go: Join Santa for a 90-minute journey through the Chester Creek Valley on West Chester’s excursion train. Heated cars and live music add to the fun with Santa. Go to West Chester Railroad for details.
