Delaware County, midway between Philadelphia and Wilmington, blends the sophistication of the city with the tranquility of the countryside. You'll find bustling industry, rolling Pennsylvania hills, turn-of-the-century small towns and gleaming cityscapes, neighborhoods with large Victorian homes and shaded streets.

Media the county seat, has a restored business district, complete with a trolley down the main street and anchored with a gleaming white courthouse. The history of the area goes back to William Penn, but the area remained predominantly rural until the twentieth century. The Delaware County Institute of Science was founded in Media in 1833, while the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology, a two-year technical college, Williamson Free School of Mechanical Trades a three-year technical college, and Delaware County Community College, a two-year liberal arts college, are located nearby. Media promotes itself as "Everybody's Hometown".

Swarthmore was originally named Westdale in honor of noted painter Benjamin West, who was one of the early residents of the town. The name was changed to Swarthmore after the establishment of Swarthmore College.

The first European settlers in the area were Swedes. They called the settlement that became Chester Finlandia (The Latin name for Finland). On October 27, 1682 the ship Welcome arrived at the town, bearing William Penn on his first visit to the province. Penn renamed the settlement for the English city of Chester. Chester is one of numerous places that claim to be the birthplace of the hoagie sandwich. It is also known as the "Cradle of Rock 'n Roll" as Bill Haley & His Comets first performed and maintained their headquarters in the Chester area.

Be sure to visit a Philadelphia event ticket broker before hand to ensure that you have tickets to all the awesome events in the area.
