Vespasian/Alamy

New Hope, PA

21 of 27

Tucked
along the Delaware River, this arty outpost is nearly an hour’s drive from
Philadelphia yet its thriving street life, vibrantly restored 19th-century
homes, and commercial enterprises make it worth the trip. Shop along Main
Street or walk across the bridge into Lambertville, NJ, where an equally
exciting town (known for its antiques shops) awaits.

See: Enjoy Broadway-style entertainment at Bucks County
Playhouse (70 South Main St.; 215-862-2041). This onetime gristmill is a
national landmark and has played host to a long line of performers, including
Grace Kelly and Robert Redford.

Eat: Get a taste of Colonial times at the Logan Inn (10 West Ferry St.; 215-862-2300), one of New Hope’s oldest continually running
establishments.
