New Hope, PA/Lambertville, NJ Weekend Vacation Getaway
Up. Up and Away
There’s something particularly romantic about a dawn or sunset hot air balloon ride over the rural countryside. Alexandria Balloon Flights is the most experienced in the area. Rides last about an hour and conclude with champagne and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace. A little expensive at $165 per person, but worth it for a special treat.
Picnic By the Canal
Pack a picnic lunch from Center Gourmet, pick up a bottle of wine from Phillips and head out to the canal for an intimate picnic for two. My favorite spot is just outside of town (New Hope) heading north on River Road. At the first sharp bend to the left, turn right, park and make your way to the towpath. Find a spot under a big tree and enjoy your lunch.
