Attractions in New Hope

Experience a little culture on your gaycation.

Delaware Canal Towpath

The 60-mile trail between Easton and Bristol, once traveled by workhorses, now sees sneakers and self-powered wheels of people who are moving along for fun—or exercise. Passers-through can discover a 90-acre pond, 11 river islands and historic bridges.

New Hope Arts Center

New Hope Arts is all about showcasing the rad work of contemporary artists in the Lambertville/New Hope area and Delaware Valley region. They present, like, six to eight mind-blowing exhibitions every year across a wicked diverse range of media – sculpture, wood, painting, fine artisan crafts, and new media installations. It’s a crazy opportunity to check out the work of local presenting artists that you won’t find anywhere else, all in a legit professional, public setting.

Washington Crossing Historic Park

If not for this spot, we might all be Brits now. That park is where we turned the tide. Honey, this isn’t just some dusty ol’ book chapter; it’s where the Continental Army pulled off the drag look of the century, crossing the Delaware River, all stealthy-like, to surprise the British. You can traipse through the same 19th-century village that’s been serving revolutionary realness since 1776, hunt for wildflowers like you’re on a flirtatious first date with Mother Nature, and delve into outdoor fun. Wear comfy shoes, because those cobbles are the originals, okay? Not even your best stilettos can handle that kind of historic realness. Wrap up the day by taking a ‘gram-worthy sunset snap by the river—because in the fight for freedom, our queer fourfathers were serving looks and land-changing victories.

Sand Castle Winery

Just as gorgeous and unassuming as New Hope, this winery offers a great education on wine-making and drinking. The tastings are heavy-handed and well-priced.

River Country

Tube, kayak, canoe or raft down the great Delaware River. Just choose your swimming attire wisely. This is adventure, not a peep show.

New Hope & Ivyland Railroad

Work your way down to the railroad, all the live long day. This trip’s itinerary leads right back through the 1800s while still providing the natural beauties offered by PAs wildlife today.

James A. Michener Art Museum

This museum is a fab showcase of local talent. It is dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting the art and cultural heritage of the Bucks County region. And let me tell you, the Bucks County region has more artistry than my drag queen friend has wigs – and that’s saying something. Named after that literary genius, James A. Michener – you know, the guy who could write a book thicker than a winter skincare routine. 

Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve

If wilderness is your passion, this is your Garden of Eden. 800 different varieties of plants for your pleasure. Take a hike, literally.
