I have been wanting to take a day trip up to New Hope, PA for quite some time now, and this past weekend I finally did it. We chose this weekend so we could check out the annual arts & crafts fair, but ended up having more fun just wandering around the town and enjoying the gorgeous fall day. Located about 40 miles north of Philadelphia, it takes less than an hour to get to New Hope – but once you’re there, you feel like you’re in a completely different state. A small town on the Delaware river, New Hope is full of antique shops, small art galleries, and quaint restaurants. After a day of walking around we ate on a balcony overlooking the river and enjoyed the quiet serenity for a little while before heading back into the city. It’s amazing how refreshing it can be to be in a different place for just a little while.
Where would you go for a fall day trip or weekend getaway? I’d love to hear about it. :)
