Route 32, also known as River Road, follows the Delaware River toward historic Bucks County’s many high-end restaurants, dive bars, art galleries, antique shops, quirky boutiques and more. Another beautiful aspect of the drive, especially this time of the year, is the stunning fall foliage.
Here are a few stops to make along the way:
You may know this park from the famous crossing by General George Washington and his troops on Christmas night in 1776, but you should also know it as a beautiful natural park and place to see the season’s changing leaves. Stretch your legs with a walk or tour before heading back out on the road.
Just a few minutes along Route 32, nature lovers find their way up Bowman’s Hill for a walk in the woods, a visit to the gardens and wildflower preserve, or a climb with a view. After taking in the fall foliage, head back out along River Road toward New Hope and enjoy a quirky town with everything from world-class dining to biker bars, boutiques and a scenic walk along the water behind Bucks County Playhouse.
Lumberville and Beyond
Back out on River Road, head north toward Lumberville and weave through the scenic back roads toward Black Bass Hotel, a 250-year-old inn with a tavern and restaurant with a riverside view. Keep it casual and visit Lumberville General Store, or keep heading north taking in the natural vistas. Keep heading north and veer toward any covered bridge you see, or head to locally loved stops like Sand Castle Winery and Ringing Rocks Park — bring a hammer and see how the park got its name.
We took a taxi to the Halekulani from the airport. At the entrance, the Halekulani team was ready, willing and able to take our bags and swiftly set us up for registration, escorting us to our room, No. 1657. I had last stayed at the Halekulani years earlier, and I have a lot of fond memories. Halekulani is a mainstay on the edge of Waikiki, and I have always considered it a haven from all the bustle. You can walk almost anywhere and return for the serenity here.

ON THE GROUND: I was invited to fly to Doha to see the unveiling of the new plans for the expansion of Hamad International Airport. Due to a family commitment, I had to leave a little later than others who were attending, and I therefore only had a few days in Qatar. The timing of this flight in the evening was perfect and allowed me to fulfill my family duties and then head to Philadelphia International Airport. I really am pleased and feel fortunate we have this direct service from Philadelphia to the Middle East; it makes travel so much easier, and the Qatar Airways service is super.
