If you’re looking for the ultimate contrast, leave the bustling city of Philadelphia for the down-home charm of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Wander through antique shops, take a ride on a hot air balloon or travel by horse through Nockamixon State Park — and don’t forget to take a few photos of the covered bridges. An hourlong drive will get you there, or you could tackle the 45-mile trip by bike.
