2 or 3 Day Getaway, East Coast, Need Suggestions PLEASE!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are both lovers of travel, however, I have been very ill for the past couple of years and we have not been able to travel as we like. That being said, we are interested in using part of our tax refund for a 2-3 day getaway somewhere within driving distance. We are from NJ and are looking to go somewhere on the east coast between Maine and Virginia. It does not necessarily have to be right on the coast but definitely within driving distance of no more than about 6 hours.

We have already been to these east coast locations: Boston, Philadelphia (we live only 20 mins. away), Mystic and Williamsburg. We live in NJ and would like to go out of the state and to somewhere we have not been.
It does not have to be a big city with huge attractions.

I guess what we are looking for is more like a relaxing getaway in a laid back area. I am still not able to keep up in a hectic environment so NY City, for instance is something not possible.

I have looked in to maybe Cooperstown, NY, Baltimore, MD, or Pittsburg, PA but I would love some suggestions on these or other locations. I wish you could do an internet search on a travel site for "travel, east coast," rather than having to put in a state. It's more about the atmosphere and the affordability than any specific location.

Thank you so much in advance for any suggestions you give.

Here's basically our wish list:

-reasonably inexpensive (not necessarily CHEAP) accommodations (hotel or B&B, not motel.) Looking to spend no more than about $300 for accommodations alone (2 or 3 nights). I've seen places that are about $150/night with 3rd night free for instance.
-Preferably within 6 hours driving distance from NJ in any direction.
-2 to 3 days' stay. does not have to include a weekend.
-relaxing but still interesting atmosphere. Cities are fine but more of a Boston pace then a NY pace.
-Preferably a lot of free or low cost attractions. (no $70 amusement parks). We love history, so touring old towns or museums, etc.
-I am a photography buff so I prefer some place with lots of visual interest.
-Weather is not a factor. We actually wouldn't mind seeing some snow. We've seen none here this year and we kind of miss it. No limitations there, even if we are snowed into a B&B for the 2-3 days)
