Philly Style' Contributors Share Their Favorite Local Getaways

| April 26, 2018 | Lifestyle

JOLENE HART - Contributing Writer


“Long Beach Island is a favorite local spot that holds so many good memories from my teens and 20s. And last summer, I got to introduce it to my 4-year old son. I love that it has retained its magic through different chapters of my life.”

BRANDON AUFIERO - Contributing Photographer


“Williamsburg, Va., is a place I often enjoy visiting to spend time with family and friends. During my travels, I must have a good book to read. This usually is something along the lines of a biography or a book about personal growth.”

DEBRA WALLACE - Contributing Writer


“Ocean City, N.J. I take my 12-year-old son there frequently, and we enjoy the ocean, people-watching on the boardwalk and Kohr Bros. ice cream. It is a perfect opportunity for me to unwind, stop checking my email and completely focus on mom-and-son bonding. We love the smell, sights and sounds of the ocean and its surroundings.”

GREGG DELMAN - Contributing Photographer


“My favorite local getaway is Fire Island, N.Y. There is not much to do there except go to the beach, barbecue and ride your bike—the simple things.”

MARNI MANKO - Contributing Editor


“My family meets up in Woodstock at least a few times a year, and it’s truly spectacular in the summer. Between the scenery, the people and the arts, there’s nowhere else quite like it.”
