"Bargain" Browsing


Okay, so we’re kidding about the "bargains," but they can be found if you look closely, like at the real 5 & Dime store in Lambertville. Other than that, eclectic shops on both sides of the river tempt you with antiques, decorative items, clothing and whatever else suits your fancy. Did we say suits? Those, too.
Fine And Dramatic Arts
Fine And Dramatic Arts


Culture along the Delaware River is renowned. Find art galleries of all stripes. Genres run the gamut from landscapes to portraits, and mediums from oil and pastel to watercolor. And let us not forget sculptors and sculptures. Theaters and thespians play out dramas and comedies, whether matinees or nightly shows.
Make Waves!
Make Waves!


So many things to do are so close to the river, why not get ON the river? You can sign up for group canoeing and lazy tubing trips down the Delaware with Big Big Gear located in Lambertville. They provide the transportation and gear. You get a completely different perspective of the river and its surroundings when you’re on it. Be sure to lotion up.
Nightlife
Nightlife


When the sun sets, nightlife begins. Visitors and locals flock to open-air restaurants, bars and other hotspots with live music deep into the night. Watch the lights dance on the river. It’s a great time to walk across the bridge to see Lambertville and New Hope sparkling in the night. Enjoy your favorite libation responsibly and rock away. Any way you roll, it’ll be good times.
Oh, What a View!
Oh, What a View!


If you like selfies with great backgrounds, go no further than down the block from Chimney Hill to George Washington Road. Park at road’s end and hike leisurely to a crest that looks down on one of the best views of the Delaware River we’ve seen. Take libation and snacks because there’s room to spread a blanket and soak in the vista.
Scenic River Drive
Scenic River Drive


One of the mellowest activities during your stay could be a leisurely scenic drive along the Delaware mentioned elsewhere on this site. Cruise north on the New Jersey side through Stockton, Frenchtown and Milford, until you arrive at a bridge crossing into Pennsylvania at Riegelsville. Head south on Rt. 32, passing through Point Pleasant and toward New Hope. The two roads provide quite a different driving experience. Click on See More for suggestions on where to stop along the way for food, wine, cappuccino and dessert.
The Great Outdoors
The Great Outdoors


If river views, fresh air and a little exercise are what you want, consider walking or biking the Delaware & Raritan Canal path. You may not want to trek all 77 miles, so do however much you please. Also, parks abound along the Delaware where you can experience colonial history, picnic and see the sights and sounds, like the Ringing Rocks, really.
Up, Up and Away!
Up, Up and Away!


Have you ever wanted to hot-air balloon? It’s the best way to see the Delaware River, quaint towns and surrounding hills. Float easily through the air over fields, watch miniature cars and people go about their day. At flight’s end, you get bragging rights, a celebratory toast of champagne may mark the adventure, and you may officially become an Aeronaut.
Vino & Vittles
Vino & Vittles


Wineries are growing like vines on both sides of the river, so your chance of finding exactly the vino you want should be pretty good. Most vintners offer vittles for your palate to complement tastings of their vintages. Wine festivals are nearly a weekly rite of summer, many with live music, an array of food vendors and other neat stuff for the wine connoisseur in you. Time to be your own sommelier.
