Below is a sampling of what our vibrant river town of New Hope has to offer.  It has a colorful history and interesting architecture which spans over 300 years. While New Hope is a small Pennsylvania town, it has an international reputation for fine food, lodging, live entertainment, antiques and eclectic art.  ​Learn more about New Hope's history and view a complete Calendar of Events for the year at visitnewhope.com.

New Hope’s reputation is larger than the actual town, home to 2,500 permanent residents and thousands more when the weather warms. The one-time transportation hub and mill town now thrives on tourism, with more bistros, boutiques, and galleries than cities several times larger.  Read Article by Dan Schlossberg
