Welcome to “It’s Not That Far,” an online magazine highlighting the best cultural, historic and recreational destinations and activities within a two-hour drive for residents of Eastern Pennsylvania. From Philadelphia to New York City and¬†from the Jersey Shore to the Poconos, our region offers an astounding variety of unique museums, parks, historic sites, sports, recreation and entertainment found nowhere else.

“It’s Not That Far” is produced by Joe McDermott, a native of Eastern Pennsylvania and former newspaper journalist¬†with a fondness for out-of-the-way places, a curiosity about unusual destinations and a lifelong appreciation for what this region of America has to offer. So fasten your seatbelts and let’s hit the road.

Because, after all, “It’s Not That Far.”
