Experience the Northeast

Experience the Northeast


JB MDL, located in south central New Jersey, is perfectly situated for experiencing the northeast. In less than two hours one can gamble at the casinos of Atlantic City, relive the birth of America in Philadelphia, watch the latest Broadway musical in New York or catch some rays on the Jersey Shore.

Day trip opportunities are all around. Nature fans can hike the Appalachian Trail in the picturesque Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area or view the amazing beauty of Valley Forge National Historical Park. History buffs can visit the battlefields at Gettysburg National Battleground, the museums on the National Mall in Washington D.C. or Fort McHenry in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

For the adventurous sportsman, the Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains offer biking, rafting and skiing. For those that want to take it a little easier Cape May offers Victorian homes and a historic lighthouse while Lancaster offers Amish craftsmanship. The off-duty opportunities are endless.
