If it ever gets cold enough in Montgomery County, Abington's Roychester Park has outdoor skating, one of a number of reasons to visit this appealing community.

Although Montgomery County tourism draws tend to center around its history — Valley Forge National Historical Park, for example — or shopping — at the nationally known King of Prussia Mall — there are pockets across its landscape that, albeit smaller, have a draw of their own. Abington is among them, according to Rina Bernardo of Travel Lens.

Out-of-towners can nestle into a hotel and explore, and locals can drop in for a day. But each visitor, no matter the length of the stay, will leave with a better appreciation of all this community has to offer.

Should winter 2023 eventually kick into high gear weatherwise, Roychester Park has an outdoor skating rink that offers an easy-on-the-budget day of fresh air, rosy cheeks, and exercise.

Once spring dawns, the park’s other assets bloom in popularity: baseball fields, tennis courts, a kid’s playground, and picnic areas.

For those who are looking for a place where they can fully immerse in nature, Briar Bush Nature Center is a great choice. The park is home to hillside trails, a large pond, and a nature area, as well as a bird observatory and a nature playscape.

If the weather turns rainy and grim, the Abington Free Library offers indoor events aimed both at children and adults.

When hunger pangs begin to rumble, Emoji Sushi & Teriyaki is the perfect place to enjoy healthy and delicious Japanese fare. For those seeking delicious and authentic Italian food, then Riviera D’Italia is the place to go.
