We downsized and moved here in 2002 with the thought of moving to an apartment in Philadelphia or New York City. We loved it so much we've never left. We front on the Delaware River between Yardley and Washington Crossing, PA. We back on the canal with miles of bike riding, kayak and swim in the river and hike on its islands. It's like being on permanent holiday and yet we're so close to the cities.
NY City is 1.2 hours north by train from Hamilton Station, NJ, Philly is 45 minutes south by train from Yardley. Princeton is 25 minutes and the Jersey Shore one hour away by car. Bucks County is beautiful. All our guests have been amazed by this secret part of the USA. The little towns up the river are a lot like England with a strong Quaker influence. It's hard to believe you're so close to dynamic cities. You can even drive down to Washington, DC in three hours.
We have been gratified by the amazing, generous, kind, interesting people we have met so far on home swaps. I have swapped my car on previous swaps but I'd prefer not to for future swaps. Rental cars here are inexpensive but we can talk about it, if you feel strongly.
We have traveled widely and hope to spend more time in Asia, Africa, North and South America and locally.

We are convenient to both Newark (EWR) and Philly airports. Trenton Airport is even closer and often less expensive, if you can get a flight on Frontier to and from there. JFK is quite a hassle, depending on traffic.
