Grab your snacks and get your playlists ready, we’re going on a road trip!

Whether you've got a three-day weekend coming up that you want to take advantage of or you're looking for a getaway from Philadelphia, we have some suggestions to make the most of your weekend trip.

1. Stonington, CT

Distance from Philadelphia: 4 hours

Where to stay: Inn at Stonington

Cheerful, cozy rooms look out onto the harbor, with its fishing, lobstering and pleasure boats. Others offer a view of the picture-perfect New England seafaring village of Stonington Borough. A short drive away is Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium, where you’ll find lots of sea life to love and have some close encounters of a different kind with seals, penguins, stingrays, sea lions and a whale that paints. You can even be a trainer for a day.

2. Lewes, DE

Distance from Philadelphia: 2 hours

Where to stay: The Blue Water House

The colorful façade will make you smile, and the laid-back, beachy atmosphere, whimsically tropical rooms and exceptional service will keep the good feelings going. You’re just an easy walk or bike (complimentary ones are available) to historic downtown Lewes and the Delaware Bay beaches.


3. Berlin, MD

Distance from Philadelphia: 2 hours 30 Minutes

Where to stay: Atlantic Hotel

Though the razzle-dazzle of Ocean City is only a few miles away, the charming village of Berlin and its tastefully Victorian centerpiece hotel will sweep you back to another time and a serene state of mind.


4. Cape May, NJ

Distance from Philadelphia: 1 hour 30 minutes

Where to stay: The Southern Mansion

Park your car and forget it. It’s only a five-minute stroll along the Cape May’s historic streets to get to the beach, boutique shopping and great restaurants. True to Cape May’s personality, this lovingly restored Victorian is an original, from its intricate crown moldings and gasolier lighting fixtures to its art collection and antique furnishings.
