This Is The Most Hippie Town In Delaware And You Need To Visit
Delaware is full of peaceful towns where you can get in touch with nature, find natural and organic foods, and live a hippie lifestyle, but one town is particularly well suited for those of us who live as if it’s still the 1960s. Newark is Delaware’s second largest town, but the vibrant student community has led to it being the hippie capital of the First State.
In Newark, Delaware, you'll find plenty of community support for the hippie lifestyle.
You can even participate in a community garden, which was created by residents to help brighten up the town.
Home Grown Cafe has been a landmark on Main Street for years.
Home Grown focuses on vegan, vegetarian and locally sourced foods.
The Newark Co-Op at Newark Natural Foods is one of the centerpieces of hippie life in town.
Here you'll find handmade local jewelry...
... bright, colorful yarns and fabrics for making clothing and tapestries...
and an impressive selection of organic and natural foods.
