Pittsburgh International Airport is 18 miles from downtown Pittsburgh, and 23 miles from Weirton, WV.

Yeah I don't get that 'almost in another state' comment for Pgh's airport. its not really close even. Philadelphia's airport is much much closer to the state line (1 mile), than Pittsburgh's is (23 miles)! and this thread isn't about close anyway, but actually in another state. If it was about close, half the cities in the US would be listed for having literally everything close to another state.

Sorry, but driving well over an hour out of state means you have no beach.

Chattanooga has its Costco in Georgia. I understand that's because wine wasn't allowed in grocery stores at the time. Also there's a lower sales tax.

To be fair, it does not take well over an hour to reach the beach from Center of Philadephia.

You show 1:09 with zero traffic. Sorry Iíll change my statement from well over an hour to over an hour with no traffic.
