Expedia AARP last week named New Hope among seven “lesser-known gems” that are worth a trip to explore.
“The Best Small Towns to Visit” is based on data from 800 American travelers, ages 45 and older.
“Life in the big city can be exciting and thrilling, but it can also be downright crowded and busy,” begins the article. It goes on to say that quieter, quainter travel destinations are the best places to escape the masses and unwind. The article concludes with a photo and description of New Hope.
“Maybe its scenic location along the Delaware River makes it a favorite small town,” observes the article. “Or maybe it’s because the downtown district is about as charming as they come. Or maybe it’s because this place makes you feel like you never left home. Especially if you booked a stay at the Inn at Bowman’s Hill. Whatever the reason New Hope, Pennsylvania, was chosen as a favorite, you won’t be disappointed. Hop aboard the restored vintage trains of the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad for a scenic ride through the Pennsylvania countryside. Climb to the top of Bowman’s Hill Tower for unbelievable expansive views of the surrounding area. On a clear day you may even see the skylines of Philly and New York City.”
Other small-town destinations mentioned in the article were Georgetown, Texas; Linton, Indiana; Bluffton, South Carolina; Conway, Arkansas; Tifton, Georgia; and Oswego, New York.
