While living on the East Coast, I knew that all the big cities were close to each other, so I took advantage of trying to get in the car and drive to another great location to explore. From where I was in New Jersey to Philadelphia, it was only an hour and some change! With such new found freedom, it was great and off to Philadelphia I went on a cold winter day. I decided to make my Philadelphia getaway a day trip due to lack of reserving an Airbnb and planning. But even in a day, this Philadelphia getaway was eventful and a great cultural experience in the United States’s birthplace!
