With three bridges connecting Morrisville to New Jersey’s state capitol, Trenton, Morrisville has close ties across Delaware River.
On most weekdays, office workers from the state capitol stroll across the river for a walk along the River front, the Delaware Canal and through the commercial corridor along Bridge Street for lunch. Efforts are underway to create an easier way for pedestrians to cross Bridge Street to continue along the towpath next to the Delaware Canal. The levee offers a beautiful views of Trenton’s skyline and the Delaware River as it flows past. Morrisville was designated a Audubon Bird Town for good reason.

The Actors’ NET of Bucks County was founded in 1996 as an actor-driven, not-for-profit regional theatre company — run by actors, for actors. We strive to attract the Delaware Valley’s best non-union talent to work and grow together to meet the challenges of a diverse repertoire.
Productions range from modern classics and musicals to Shakespeare and new and original works, each designed to encourage actors to enhance their skills and artistry while appealing to and expanding the theatrical tastes of audiences of all ages, incomes, and cultural backgrounds.
We further seek to celebrate the region’s historical significance by presenting theatrical pieces which illuminate the issues and personalities that have helped shape our region, commonwealth and nation. Through staging quality shows and providing training to actors of all ages, we are committed to keeping alive the best traditions of the American theatre.
As resident theater company at the intimate 85-seat Heritage Center (which The NET’s corps of volunteers converted from municipal garage into performance space), Actors’ NET enjoys a unique partnership with the Borough of Morrisville. The theater attracts countless visitors to the borough throughout the year — many of whom frequent local restaurants and other business establishments.
The NET also provides training for actors of all ages — and since 1999 has been running a popular four-week musical theatre program for students ages 7 – 12 and 13 – 17. Called “Summer Stars,” upon completion of the instruction in acting, singing and dance the students perform full length shows custom-written to ensure there are no bit roles and everyone has his and her opportunity to shine. Over the years, a number of these students have gone on to careers in the performing arts, including regional theatre, Broadway and into the music industry.
A walk along the 60-mile long towpath of Delaware Canal State Park is a stroll into American history. Paralleling the Delaware River between Easton and Bristol, this diverse park contains an historic canal and towpath, a 90-acre pond, many miles of river shoreline, and 11 river islands including the Morgan Hill group (3), Loors, Whippoorwill, Old Sow, Raubs, Lynn/Frog/Rock group, and Hendricks. From riverside to farm fields to historic towns, visitors to Delaware Canal State Park enjoy the ever-changing scenery along its corridor.
The Delaware Canal is the only remaining continuously intact canal of the great towpath canal building era of the early and mid-19th century.
Summerseat was George Washington’s Headquarters from December 8-14, 1776 and is the only home in America that was owned by two signers of both The Declaration of Independence and The American Constitution, Robert Morris and George Clymer
