Old City Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pa.

Distance from Baltimore: 100 miles, two hours' drive Why it's worth the gas: Old City District considers itself "Hipstoric": modern lifestyles melded into "the most historic square mile of the United States." That means you can easily hit up the Betsy Ross House, Christ Church and Independence... NANINE HARTZENBUSCH, Baltimore Sun
