Need a new profile picture or just want to have a fun photo shoot? Here’s the Best Places to Take Instagram Photos in Chester County:
Farmhouse Coffee & Expresso Bar
Phone eats first, especially at the Farmhouse Coffee & Expresso Bar in Downingtown. This coffee shop offers specialty coffees and hand crafted beverages, along with food from their in-house bakery. It’s located on Business Route 30 by the Downingtown Diner.
Marsh Creek State Park
Come to Marsh Creek State Park to take beautiful sunset photos by the water. Originally, the area that is now the park was once a small town, but there was frequent flooding, water shortages, and lack of recreational opportunities, so they turned the town into a dam. Now, people enjoy the many recreational activities Marsh Creek has to offer, such as kayaking, boating, horse-back riding, fishing and more!
Please Wash Me Car Wash
This isn’t just your normal car wash. Rick Frey planted the one acre sunflower field to his car wash to attract more clients after neighboring farms started covering his business. Get a new profile picture with these sunflowers near the end of July/beginning of August when the sunflowers are in full bloom.
