"A very comfortable express bus ride from NYC: 90 minutes and 9,000 light years from the city. New Hope is a comfortable cosmopolitan seaside village, no need whatsoever for a car. We strolled the art galleries and boutiques, hiked the canal towpath and even took the mule–drawn barge ride and the steam train ride too. The Inn has a great location — thanks for the car ride to the bus stop; we bought too much stuff to walk to it."
