When most of us head out to the suburbs, we go shopping in Doylestown or stroll the streets of New Hope or West Chester. It’s rare for us to travel farther outside of our Philly area bubble for a day trip, but there’s one town in Delaware that you may not know is totally worth the drive down 95. The little village of Arden, not far from Wilmington, is a utopian town that might be the most hippie town you can find near Philadelphia. Channel your inner flower child and spend a day in this unique village.

Plan a day trip to Arden if you want to get in touch with your peaceful, community-loving, hippie self. For more information about the village and to keep up with current events, check out the Arden Club website here. You won’t find a more welcoming village anywhere else!
