Philadelphia is great! There are lots of restaurant options and places to walk around and discover. But after living here for so long, sometimes it is nice to escape for a day or a weekend. Although I am nowhere near complete exploring Philadelphia.

Here I will compile a list of places you can see, do, eat and sleep during a day trip or weekend getaway out of Philly. Most places will be within a 4 hour drive.

If you have suggestions on somewhere you'd like me to check out, let me know! You can also share your tips to be featured and help fellow explorers.
