Great Escapes Near Philly

A family white water rafting near Jim Thorpe

Hour 2

After being cooped up all winter long, a lot of us feel the itch to get out and explore the region, to shake off that cabin fever.  Whether you prefer a country walk, a seaside spa, a mountain hike, or art galleries and antique shops, you can find it all within a few hours of Philadelphia.  Joining us to talk about some of their favorite getaways are  MARILYN ODESSER-TORPEY, author of Quick Escapes from Philadelphia, and SUSAN CHARKES, author of Best Day Hikes Near Philadelphia.
