I'm a sucker for a quaint, walkable day-trip town. Maybe I'm just a basic white girl who loves a latte while strolling though over-priced candle shops (I usually rock the required messy top-bun and scarf combo to fulfill that stereotype) but I simply can't help it Peddler's Village in New Hope is so stinkin' cute it will charm the pants off you too.

Have you been to Peddler's Village?  It really is the perfect spot for a fall afternoon OR to gear up for Christmas...the whole village lights up for the holidays and it could not be cozier.

Just to describe the scene, when we first arrived, the smell of cinnamon was in the air...like a detective I was sure to sniff out the source.  I found a large black kettle over and open fire warming up fresh apple cider (spiked or regular) at the village center.  After imbibing, we bopped around from adorable shop to shop finding the most unique handcrafted gifts that we would pass off as making ourselves come Christmastime.

There's something for everyone at Peddler's Village...like endless shopping, a murder mystery interactive show, adult cocktail theatre, farm to table restaurants and more!  This is a great time to go because they are hosting Apple Weekend this Saturday and Sunday from 10am-6pm!  It's free admission and free parking.  You'll enjoy bounce houses for the kiddos, live entertainment at the gazebo, outdoor food (don't forget to try the apple fritters), food trucks, and more!

I'm telling you, this spot is so family friendly, festive and adorable we go every single fall and winter. Say hi if you spot me there and we can compare candles lol! BTW Peddler's Village is located at:  2400 Street Road, New Hope, PA 18938 (I'm a GPS girl).  Also, here's a list of the 30 most unique towns to visit in New Jersey:
