New Hope Offers Plenty of Bang for Your Buck in Bucks County

Once an industrail town that attracted artists, to its stone farmhouses, barns and mills, New Hope has transitioned into a favorite spot of tourists with a heritage profound in its roots in theater, art and the antiques trade. 

It’s not just a spot for weekenders and couples on leaf-peeping trips, however, as its proximity to Philadelphia and New Jersey make it a popular spot for meetings and events.
