Hi there. I'm a single, childfree woman in my early 40s looking to relocate to either Bucks County, DC, or Raleigh/Durham and am seeking more info. Is Bucks County - I'm thinking of the Delaware river towns like New Hope in particular - a good choice for someone in my position? Is it COMPLETELY family-oriented?

I'm attracted to the area because it's not big-city, there seems to be a lot of green space and opportunities for nature walking (like along the Delaware canal), and it's liberal and artsy. Also its relatively close to Philly and my larger family.

I'm pretty simple - I want one good cafe, a handful of good restaurants, one Whole Foods-like grocery store, easy access to wilderness/trail walking, and liberal (at least politically moderate) people. Well, I guess I'm not that simple.

Also, my salary will probably be in the $65,000-$90,000 range if that helps. I live a fairly bohemian lifestyle and would probably live in a small cottage or 1-2 bdrm apt.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

Unless something has drastically changed, no, it's not completely family oriented.

I know the area well and it fits perfectly for what you're looking for. Not quite as well as philly, but it suits singles very well
