Road Trips from Philadelphia

Road Trips from Philadelphia

Sandwiched in between New York City, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., Philadelphia has long served as a historic meeting point in American history. Philly’s super-urban reputation is slightly misleading, as just an hour two northwest lies plenty of mountains, forest, and outdoor activity that can provide the perfect retreat from the stresses of the city.
