you can walk the long paths, ride bikes, or just sit and people watch. not a whole lot to do right there, so pack a lunch and maybe some games.

Charming area in historic New Hope. Walk where others may have lingered more than a 100 years ago. Not one of the 7th wonders of the ancient world, but you could do worse.

I don't recall there being any bike rentals around. I wasn't really looking for them though. The area isn't that big where you might need a bike to get around. Well my opinion. We walked to see everything.
