Bucks County: A Unique Experience to be Had in New Hope


New Hope Station

You’ll find New Hope nestled along the Delaware River, along with a unique blend of boutiques, art galleries, eateries and more. With the addition of the Bucks County Playhouse nearby, it’s a perfect afternoon out, or even great for a romantic weekend by adding a stay at a local bed and breakfast. 

Many people rave about the nearby Peddler’s Village for its quaint and charming shops. It sits in Lahaska which is only a stone’s throw away and less than a fifteen-minute drive if you want to add it to your weekend plans. 

Great Outdoor Dining and More

New Hope offers history, vibrance, and even a trendy feel. It allows you to bathe in the artful environment, flair, and amazing tastes that are offered at top restaurants worth raving about. And with outdoor dining that offers great views of the river, it can’t be beat.

Another thing to consider is wineries and tap rooms are all the rage right now, and Nektar perfectly fills the bill. This wine, beer, and whisky lounge offers small plates to share, along with a great location on Mechanic Street in New Hope.

You’ll love the indoor-outdoor feel of Nektar, and the wide range of options. And talk about convenience—it sits across from the Bucks County Playhouse. If you’re looking for something different to do, consider their tasting classes. 

Love a good treat? Check out the C’est La Vie French Bakery & Café for something special.

Looking for live music? Consider adding Greenhouse to your itinerary. Grab brunch or go out with friends in the evening to enjoy their floor to ceiling windows. John and Peter’s Place on Main Street is another place to stop for music while you’re in town. 

If you’re more of a dessert person than a after-dinner drink person, The Last Temptation should make your list of places to visit. Ice cream delight! 

If your mouth waters at a glass of amazing wine, consider The Pour House at the New Hope Winery which is just a short drive away on Lower York Road. They offer live music with over 250 seats available. This is a must-do when you’re looking for a kick-back and unwind kind of stay. 

Los Catrines and Stella by Jose Garces are two other foodie choices, when you’re looking for a bite to eat while enjoying great scenery. Now that you’ve filled your belly, let’s check out a little bit more about this great, happening town. 

Ready for a Little bit of History?

Marsha Brown offers dining in a 125-year-old stone church! How neat is that? With the twist of Creole dining, you don’t want to miss this treat. 

Looking for a spooky good time? New Hope offers ghost tours come October. With so much history and so many old buildings in the town, there’s always something to learn and see. And the amazing part of New Hope is how condensed it is. It’s easy to take in all of the specialties on foot. 

The Wedgewood Inn of New Hope is the perfect place to rest your head at the end of a full day. The charm of a Victorian home and bed and breakfast is right in the center of it all. The Wedgewood house is from 1870, and there are other old buildings on the grounds, such as a carriage house. One of the things you’ll be pleased about is that they offer pet-friendly rooms. 

You can also check out the Locktender’s House, which is open and has been restored right along Main Street. It will give you the opportunity to learn about the canal’s history. In the early 1800’s many people relied on the canal for transporting goods, as the roads weren’t good for travel. The canal extends alongside the Delaware River. Mule-drawn boats were used often, before the Civil War.

The Logan Inn on West Ferry Street dates back to the 1720’s! This inn is credited as being one of the oldest inns in the country that’s been in continuous operation. Pretty impressive. You can stay, dine, or enjoy a drink at this historic mansion. 

The New Hope Historical Society also offers guided tours. Check out their events, calendar, and tour notes here

And lastly, if you’re looking for something to do with the kids or grandkids, consider the Children’s Museum of Bucks County, which is located at Union Square in New Hope.
