It seemed like summer was swept away with a crisp breeze this year, welcoming Fall maybe a little sooner than we were ready for. As we’re saying “So long!” to our favorite memories from this past summer, we’re getting ready to embrace all the wonderful upcoming fall activities and festivals. If you’ve never visited New Hope in Autumn, we’ll let you in on a little local secret…it is the absolute best time of year to visit! The fall foliage makes the already stunning views of the Delaware even better, and weekends are jam-packed with fall-themed events. Here are just a few great reasons to start planning your visit to New Hope today.
