With Governor Wolf’s “stay at home” executive order in place due to the coronavirus pandemic, many Doylestown residents might wonder how to pursue each day with positivity and not get overwhelmed. On the bright side, technology enables us to reach others in different homes, both locally and across the globe. It also opens up a world of activities to help us through this necessary order to stay at home and flatten the curve.
Here are some activities to take part in at home which the whole family will love:
Explore the Artwork at Michener Museum
If you love nothing more than gazing at the beautiful artwork at the Michener Museum and you’ve been unable to visit lately, you can explore the creative collections online. From paintings to sculptures, you can explore the beautiful displays from the comfort of your own home.
Peruse the Collections at Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle
Shop Local Stores Online
Due to the executive order, most local stores have had to close their doors. Looking for a way to buy local, support Doylestown businesses, and grab some great items at the same time? Many Doylestown stores have online shopping sites or social media pages that you can peruse and purchase your favorite items. Some of these stores include the following:
- Lotus Apparel and Home (view the beautiful options on Instagram and Facebook; DM to purchase)
- Smith & Scott (check out the options on Facebook and Instagram; DM to purchase)
- Serendipity of Doylestown (shop via Instagram and send DM to purchase)
- Nomad Supply Co. (shop online)
- Monkey’s Uncle (shop on the website and they’ll ship)
Make a Sign and Display for All to See
Sometimes the best way to get through a difficult situation is to display as many positive sentiments as possible. This is the case in Doylestown where Kristin Moore Photography and her family created rainbow paintings to hang in their window, as did Monkey’s Uncle. Others were encouraging the community to pick up a piece of sidewalk chalk and write positive statements on their walkways for all to see.

Any time is a good time to stay in shape and exercise is a great stress reliever, too. Since gyms are closed and exercise options are limited, it’s good to know that Pure Barre Doylestown is offering virtual classes. Visit their website for all the details.
