Places to Visit on a Road Trip From Philadelphia To Washington, D.C.
The history, natural wonders, and big-city opportunities of the East Coast are sure to hold an adventure for everyone. From Brandywine Creek State Park to Oriole Park to the Smithsonian museums, these top travel destinations are must-sees. As you start your trip, check out these convenient Pennsylvania locations for you to rent a car, and get started on the road!
Brandywine Creek State Park
41 Adams Dam Rd, Wilmington, DE 19807
Brandywine Creek is a hidden gem along the East Coast. As you make your way from Philadelphia to the capital, this is a definite place to stop. The beautiful forest offers plenty of hiking and biking opportunities. You can also rent a canoe or kayak, go fishing, or catch a great concert during the summer.
If you end up loving this place so much that you want to stay for the night, there are many year-round camping locations, as well as opportunities to rent a cottage or yurt. With your extra time in the park, you can visit the Brandywine Zoo, play in the sand dunes, and walk along the Indian River Marina.
Baltimore is a dream spot for anyone going on a road trip in the area. Oriole Park is one of Baltimore’s highest-rated attractions. It’s easy to see why--you can catch a great game, eat delicious food, and take a tour of the facilities.
But the Camden Yards area holds much more for sports fans than just Oriole Park. You can tour the Ravens football stadium, explore the Sports Legends Museum, and visit the Babe Ruth House while you’re here.
Washington, D.C., is about a two and a half hour drive from Philadelphia. Once you’ve arrived in the nation’s gorgeous capital, there are so many things to do--but the Smithsonian is a highlight. The museums here cater to every interest. From zoology to aerospace and art to history, there’s something here for everyone.
Pro tip: As you visit the museums, consider getting food there, too. You’ll likely be here for several hours enjoying the many buildings and get hungry, but you’re not allowed to bring food or drinks in the museums. The restaurants here serve dishes inspired by their exhibits, so it’s a great chance to experience more of the culture, and almost all of them have discounts for federal employees.
