Exploring Beyond Philadelphia

The Philadelphia metro area is much bigger than the city alone. The collar counties—Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester—are packed with historical sites, state parks, vibrant restaurant scenes, and unique attractions.

New Jersey and Delaware are also a huge part of what makes the Delaware Valley a fun place to live and visit. From the fun Adventure Aquarium to the cute streets of Haddonfield and the grand du Pont mansions around Wilmington, there is a lot to see just beyond Philadelphia. Plus, what would summer be without a visit to the shore towns?

All these places contribute to the character of the metro area, so we’ve included them in our local explorations. Discover some of the cool things right outside the city.
