Hey everyone! I have from July2nd-July6th to take a trip somewhere. I would prefer not to fly and I want a spot with tons of photography potential.

What do you suggest?

Assuming you are avoiding Philly because of the specific holiday...

If you're adventurous and have landscape gear, you could spend a day, perhaps two, hiking through the Jersey Pine Barrens. Plenty of wildlife, foliage and nature. It's probably to late, but you can rent very comfy cabins down there for about 55-75 a nig, right off 206.

You could spend a day in.Lancaster County. Very idyllic, back country roads, Amish abound.

If you're in the area at dinner time (dusk or so...), there is a restaurant along the Delaware on the Jersey side and great views across the river into South Philly. If you can get up high enough, perhaps shots of downtown.

A night could be spent in Wildwood shooting all the neon colored rides and shops.

These are just off the top of my head.

Good luck!

Longwood gardens is wonderful, just south of Philadelphia. You could spend a day there easily (they have a nice restaurant too, but you have to have a reservation). Sadly they are not super photographer-friendly -- they allow tripods, but you have to sign a form stating that you will not sell the pictures or use them for any commercial purpose.

Other than that I have nothing.

Hi Grace,
If you feel like hiking I would suggest Rickett's Glen for some beautiful waterfalls. I think from Philly it would be a 5-6 hr. drive.

If you want to stay closer to Philly, Longwood Gardens is good and so is Chanteclear.

Have fun where ever you decide to go!

Thought you were heading towards the Smokies? Exploring other options? I suppose you could be in Maine in about the same time as Gatlinburg. Acadia NP might be nice.

Allegheny National Forest/State Park seems to have a lot of potential, it's on my to do list, just haven't taken the time yet.
