New Hope & Lambertville Named Best Hippie Towns in their States
Thrillist recently named the most hippie towns in each state, and it’s no surprise that two bohemian Main Streets in our backyard hit this list- New Hope (PA) and Lambertville (NJ).
Thrillist calls Lambertville, “The gently rolling rural area…scattered with hippie ex-New Yorkers who escaped the city,” and credits drum circles, Big Bear Natural Foods, and yoga as core hippy hot spots.
Then, it’s New Hope’s turn. Thrillist descibes, “For a town of 2,500 there’s an embarrassing wealth of vintage thrift shops, art festivals, music shops, head shops, and a thriving local theater scene that has produced more than a few Broadway superstars. Its LGBTQ community may have taken center stage in recent years, but the true heart of New Hope lies in its flower-power roots. While New Hope abuts the Land of Springsteen, it’s decidedly more Jerry Garcia than Jersey.”
