Best Places To Travel For A Day: All Within Driving Distance Of Central Pennsylvania

Need to escape your college town for just a day? Maybe you have a long weekend, and you are looking for somewhere close by that you can easily travel to, without having to worry about expensive flights or extensive travel delays. Leaving the area can be a great idea to clear the mind, even for just a little bit! After taking quite a few day trips away from central Pennsylvania, I have discovered a few of the best places within driving distance from Penn State that you should consider for your next day off.

Brigantine Beach

This private beach is around four hours away from Penn State, including traffic! We often miss beaches within the valley, so it can be quite worthwhile to take a trip to a nearby beach! Brigantine Beach is relatively quiet but can still be quite warm and relaxing, especially in the summer.

Washington, D.C.

Simply stated, there's millions of things to do while you're in Washington, D.C.! Less than a four hour drive away remains excellent restaurants, tourist attractions and amazing shops that you can spend days traveling through!

New York City

Similarly to Washington, D.C., you can spend forever in New York and never become bored! Walk around Times Square and shop for the day, or explore the surrounding towns. Take a relaxing stroll, or feel the nighttime city vibes!

Philadelphia

Home to some large sports complexes and shopping malls, you can easily visit Philadelphia in the day! Begin by touring through all the shops they have to offer, and end your day with an Eagles football game!

Pittsburgh

Take in the beautiful sights of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The architecture and lights create a beautiful city vibe while also having plenty to offer for tourists!

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
