While recently traveling to Philly for our friends' wedding, we asked for suggestions on where to stay on the way out. A friend suggested New Hope, PA. the night-before and I booked a hotel the next morning. It was also the day-of-the-trip. Thus, we traveled completely blindly into the cutest little town on ...
