PA 101 Resource Kit - Philadelphia

We're excited to announce a new addition to Pennsylvania's Fantastic-Roadtrip-a-Matic, specially designed for visiting students and families to our many colleges and universities.

Dubbed PA 101, this virtual roadtrip box is filled with two ready-to-ride itineraries guiding visiting and prospective students, families, and faculty to all the best attractions and destinations in and around Pennsylvania's major college and university hubs, including Philadelphia and its surrounding countryside. It's our version of a Pennsylvania "cram course." We believe that PA 101 will also be a useful tool for your college or university's recruitment marketing. It's totally FREE to use and worthwhile content to share with your audience. We would be thrilled if you share these roadtrips with visiting families.

Here's just a few ways you can promote the roadtrip at your college/university:

Promote PA 101 on your website and/or in your email communications with a link to the roadtrip itineraries.

Share PA 101 on your Facebook pages, Twitter feed, or other social media channels.

Display printed posters or ads featuring QR codes for readers to view the PA 101 itineraries on their mobile phones.

Below you'll find all the information and materials you'll need to get started. If you have any other questions or need any help, please contact us at



Each of the PA 101 Philadelphia roadtrips are two days/two nights and take visitors to iconic PA destinations that are within an easy drive of your university. The online itineraries include a description of each destination, as well as "Worthy Detours" along the way and recommendations for dining and overnight lodging. Check out the roadtrips by clicking on the itinerary links just below. Be sure to copy the URL links so you can include those in your college or university's promotional activities.
