31. Just two hours outside Philly, Wildwood, NJ, breaks the mold of boardwalk food with Joe’s Fish Co., La Bakerie, and the Taco Joint -- we’re talking elevated concept shore eats. When you’re full, chill on the beach, or muster the courage to try the dozens of rides across the three Morey’s Piers.
32. Pick a summer weekend with a new moon and drive north to Cherry Springs, PA, to scope out more stars than you would ever see in Philly. During the day, check out beginner-level hiking routes and the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon.
33. New Hope and sister city Lambertville is one of several fun, quick, and cheap trips you can easily take from Philly. In addition to seaside views at brunch and tons of local art shops, walk on the bridge over the Delaware to see exactly where the NJ/PA cut-off is.
