Discover Media

With a friendly motto like “Everybody’s Hometown,” you know before even setting foot in Media that you’re going to feel right at home. Located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, this east coast town is proud of its origin, the locals’ grassroots efforts, and their wholesome fun-for-the-whole-family entertainment options. If you plan to rent a motorhome in Media, get ready for a memorable trip for the books—or the family scrapbook, in this case.

The Great Outdoors

If you feel like a stroll, park your RV rental in Media and roam in a beautiful 650-acre garden. Tyler Arboretum gives visitors a place to leisurely wander and admire various native and exotic plants, and search for the aging tree houses that are hidden throughout the park. For anyone wanting a more challenging hike, the arboretum also has a variety of trails—some paved, others dirt, a few with multiple water crossings. Children will especially love the scavenger hunts, maze, goblin shack, and other fun activities that are offered.

Ridley Creek State Park is another place frequented for hiking, although it is also a popular spot for bikers, horseback riders, and fishermen. Old mills, mansions, and farm houses invite you in to explore and immerse yourself in the historic significance of the state park. For more hiking, as well as festivals, free summer concerts, and a Christmas light display, visit Rose Tree Park. If you're here during the off-season and there are no events, the park is still the perfect spot for a picnic. Pack a sandwich and some fresh fruit and indulge in an outdoor lunch while sitting back and bird watching.

Speaking of fresh fruit, try picking your own while renting a motorhome in Media. Indian Orchards is a fourth-generation family-operated business where you can pick apples, peaches, or berries and try raw honey, homemade preserves and other local products from their farmstand. Or, visit Linvilla Orchards, where you can not only pick your own crisp apples, but also find fresh pies and enjoy face-painting and hay-rides for the kids.

RV Parks

Media is a small borough, but you’ll find several camping options nearby. Just outside of Media is Coatesville, a city in Chester County with a well-loved campground that will house your luxury RV from Media for the night. The Philadelphia/West Chester KOA Holiday provides hookups, Wi-Fi, showers—the works. You also can purchase firewood for the fire-pits or participate in one of the many group activities offered regularly.

Just outside of Pennsylvania, in Clarksboro, New Jersey, the Philadelphia South/Clarksboro KOA offers similar amenities. With just a short drive in your camper rental from Media, you can enjoy all these comforts, plus a jumping pillow and a playground for the kids, as well as large dog park.

Also in New Jersey, Old Cedar Campground in Monroeville, provides the usual amenities in addition to mini-golf, fishing, and bike trails.

While across the Pennsylvania border, a stay in New Jersey actually offers the advantage of being closer to endless entertainment options and city life in downtown Philadelphia.

Exploring the City

But before you pack up and take your RV rental from Media over to Philadelphia, be sure to check out the entertainment options that this charming town provides. The First Fair Trade Town in the United States, Media is proud of its efforts to raise awareness of ethical consumption, environmental impact, and social/economic justice. Make a quick visit to the quirky coffee shop, Burlap and Bean—Media's first Fair Trade coffee roaster. It's located inside a renovated auto mechanic shop that has purposefully retained the auto shop feel in its interior, even including a photo that commemorates the mechanic who previously owned the place.

Local’s favorite, Pinocchio’s Restaurant, is a circa-1955 pizza spot that gives the kiddos raw dough to play with and offers the adults an extensive craft beer selection. Like its sister town, Swarthmore, Media also has the 320 Market Cafe, a cafe that is known for its unique beer selection as well—but also natural wines, fancy cheeses, and freshly-baked breads.

For entertainment, head to the Media Theatre, a restored old venue used for musicals and plays. With beautiful chandeliers, dark wood paneling, and an elegant bar, the theater has a vintage feel to it. And if one theater isn't enough, Media also has the Hedgerow Theatre. Originally a gristmill, Hedgerow is another converted rustic building that provides an old-fashioned experience to its visitors.

After catching a show, stop by the free Pennsylvania Veterans Museum. The museum has a great collection of military history and its displays are primarily made up of gifts from veterans and their families dating back to the Civil War. If you prefer, the veteran volunteers will escort you and explain each and every item that you see. While in town, check out the Rose Valley Museum at Thunderbird Lodge. This museum is inside a historical building, a circa-1790 stone barn, and was part of the Arts and Crafts movement in America.

If this town doesn’t make you want to permanently post up, we know you must be a true nomad. Media can make any visitor feel at home but is also a great jumping off point for renting an RV and exploring the region. Book your RV in Delaware County and start your adventure today!

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.
