There are so many great places to visit just a few hours away from Philly. At Dockside, we take pride in bringing you a low-maintenance, high-luxury lifestyle so that you can take off at a moment’s notice.
The Poconos, Pennsylvania
You can get to the Poconos from Philadelphia in about 2.5 hours, and it is a great place to beat the city’s summer heat. Go there for lodge stays, farm-to-table meals, and beautiful mountain views. The Poconos region also offers wine tastings, waterfall hikes and more! The area has over 150 lakes for swimming, fishing, and boating along with several rivers, some of which include sections of white water rafting-ready rapids. There are many hiking trails and mountain bike trails as well.
Pennsylvania Dutch Country, PA
Concentrated around the city and county of Lancaster, a rural area about 90 minutes outside Philadelphia, is the land of the Amish, where you’ll share the road with horse-drawn buggies. The Pennsylvania Dutch Country area is also popular for antiquing and visiting farmers markets. Families traveling with kids will love Dutch Wonderland, an old-school, 50-acre amusement park for small children and families.
The Adirondacks, New York
The Adirondacks are a beloved East Coast destination and a great weekend trip from Philadelphia. It is a longer drive, at around 5-6 hours, but once you arrive you’ll realize it’s worth the trip. You can hike, swim, bike, or just take in the gorgeous scenery. Don’t miss out on the local wine and craft beer scenes, as well as the walking tours and museums to learn about the region.
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
Rehoboth Beach in Delaware is a great, easy weekend getaway from Philadelphia. This alternative to the Jersey Shore is only a little over two hours away and is fun for the whole family. Here you can enjoy tax-free shopping, delicious salt water taffy, a nice boardwalk, amusement park rides, and plenty of fun in the sun.
New Hope, PA
This small town in Bucks County on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River has long been a popular place for weekend getaways for couples. This is antique country, and the town and surrounding area are filled with antique shops. New Hope also has a thriving music scene with many performance venues of all sizes. Visitors can tube, kayak and canoe down the Delaware River. The Bucks County area has also become a popular foodie destination, with farm-to-table restaurants taking advantage of the area’s rich variety of locally grown produce and artisan foods.
