Some fun activities in Gilbertsville include playing golf or shopping at Zerns Farmers Market. Also, within a relatively short drive, there are a number of activities in Boyertown, such as the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles.
Gilbertsville is a small town with little in the way of attractions, but it is a popular regional destination for playing golf at courses such as the Hickory Valley Golf Club, Twin Ponds Golf Course or the Gilbertsville Golf Club. Zern's Farmers Market also takes place on Fridays and Saturdays all year long and features two separate buildings, one of which contains the farmer's market. The other building is a general flea market, and vendors set up booths outdoors between the two buildings as well. The market is a popular draw for those who enjoy Pennsylvania Dutch food.
The Museum of Historic Vehicles in nearby Boyertown has dozens of classic vehicles, as well as memorabilia, literature and roadside architecture. The museum complex is actually the former home of major vehicle and carraige manufacturers. The Colebrookdale Railroad also takes visitors on scenic rides through the Secret Valley. Some other activities in Boyertown include seeing a performance at the State Theatre or going on a hay ride and navigating a corn maze at Wilcox Farm.
