What to do around Pennsylvania

New Hope

There is a number of small towns in the US that seem to survive simply by being picturesque. A combination of natural beauty, historical significance and the establishment of an art colony (followed by inevitably by a writer’s colony and a rustic theater) creates that certain atmosphere that brings the tourists out in droves. Whether the original tourist impetus was the antiques in the historical part of town or the artworks in the art colony, the more people arrive, the more craft shops, antique stores, boites, boutiques and charm-laden restaurants open. Bucks County Playhouse, New Hope Mule Drawn Barge Ride, Coryell’s Ferry, New Hope and Ivyland Steam Railway, Parry Mansion are just some attractions.
A visit during fall gives this Pennsylvania farm feeling.
