He may not have slept here, but George Washington reportedly marched through this quirky town on four occasions during the Revolutionary War. Today, New Hope also ranked in the top 10 for its bars and music scene—and makes a lively launching pad for area festivities, from the Revolutionary Run in Washington Crossing, just a few miles south. If you visit New Hope before the Fourth, you can check out the Liberty Canal Festival, where enthusiasts reenact George Washington’s June 20–22, 1778, encampment. New Hope also ranked near the top of the survey for antiques shopping and cafés; brunch spot Logan Inn dates back to 1722.
