When Bucks County, PA residents hear Langhorne, PA mentioned, many of us automatically think of one of the best known shopping centers in Bucks County, the Oxford Valley Mall, located on East Lincoln Highway. The mall’s numerous surrounding eateries and entertainment outlets, such as Oxford Valley Movie Theater, Sesame Place, and various bars/clubs are also popular attractions. Often, young adults get behind the wheel after having had too many drinks, making Langhorne, PA particularly prone to Bucks County fatal car accidents involving driving under the influence (DUI).
In addition to the Oxford Valley Mall, Langhorne and adjacent Fairless Hills are home to several other shopping centers, including Langhorne Square Shopping Center, located on Old Lincoln Highway (Business Route 1), Lincoln Center and The Target Shopping Center, located on East Lincoln Highway, and The Shoppes at Flower’s Mill, located on Route 213 and Flowers Mill Road.
There is also The Court at Oxford Valley, which is flanked by Oxford Valley Road and Old Lincoln Highway (Business Route 1), but also is located less than a mile from the exit/entrance ramps of both US Route 1 and I-95.
