There is no doubt New Hope & Lambertville  are charming and exciting resort towns.  There are 2 paths you can take when you vacation here.  You can keep busy with the hundreds of local activities and shows or you can delve into the more relaxed vacation vibe while taking in the ambience of the historic and quaint river villages.

One recent chilly late Spring Thursday evening, Michael took me out to dinner at a ‘new’ restaurant called “Brian’s”.  After a sumptuous dining experience, we went for a walk around Lambertville doing window shopping at Art Galleries and antique stores. At some point while strolling past historic buildings, impressive churches and grounds, I got the sense of Lambertville as a remarkable quaint village.

A serene stroll across the Delaware River on the "New Hope/Lambertville Free Bridge" is not to be missed.

Then, we got to the notoriously romantic bridge connecting to New Hope.  A little chilly -yes- but always a soul feeding experience strolling over that scenic bridge.  That night, there were a few couples walking, holding hands, and enjoying the view.  In the amber glow of the setting sun,  a fun group was laughing and taking pictures of themselves with the smokey blue river, tree covered hills and New Hope skyline in the background.

Of course, while holding hands, looking at the amazing view, and walking across the bridge back to your cozy room at the Fox and Hound Inn, it is always a good idea to give your sweetie a little smooch.  What a lovely evening we had.  So happy to live in this romantic, picturesque resort area.
