The best county in the state of Pennsylvania. Also one of the most affluent. Part of the Philadelphia metropolitan area (aka Delaware Valley) Bucks is home to rolling hills, beautiful farmland, cute towns, great shopping, and diversity. Politically liberal. The roads here are much better than other parts of the state. And people drive faster. Usually divided into three parts:
1) Upper Bucks - land of rolling pastures and picturesque villages, quirky places (Haycock Township ;) and the rather large Lake Nockamixon.
2) Central Bucks - the wealthiest part, known for its premier school district of the same name; Doylestown, New Hope (PA's version of Provincetown) and Buckingham are the richest areas
3) Lower Bucks - most urban part that is closest to Philadelphia; lots of racial and economic diversity; Langhorne, Sesame Place and Bensalem are the major attractions w/ tons of commercial development
All in all, an awesome place to live. Sure taxes are a bit high and owning a house is expensive, but generally, people are friendly and welcome change. If your going to move to Pennsylvania, move here!
