Getaway Ideas for the Local Traveler

Book Description

No Planning Required!

Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This first edition of Day Trips from Philadelphia is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in your own backyard. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most within a two-hour drive of Philadelphia.

Explore the Revolutionary War battlefields at Valley Forge or walk the brick-lined streets of New Castle, Delaware, to get a glimpse of 17th-century life.

Relax on Cape May’s sandy beaches, stroll along Wildwood’s busy boardwalk, or ride the Tilt-A-Whirl at the pier in Ocean City.

Sample the local treats offered at the farms and wineries in Chester and Bucks Counties, or satiate that sweet tooth with a visit to Hershey.
