Affordable Weekend Getaway near NYC and Philly?

Jump to last reply

Can you recommend any good/charming places and hotels in between NYC and Philly for a weekend getaway for a young 20-something couple? Anything in NJ or PA between the two cities would be ideal, but anywhere that's a shorter drive than 3 hours or so would be great. In a dream world, there would be a fantastic deal of less than $150 for both nights combined.

We know Atlantic City has amazing deals on fantastic hotels, but it seems like everything else get's to be pretty expensive there, and the end of April isn't really beach weather! Any other suggestions? Perhaps near a vineyard or brewery? He's into nature and beer and I'm into art and culture, but for such a short trip, anything goes! We are going to arrive late on a Friday night in late April, spend Saturday exploring wherever we wind up, and then leave after lunch on Sunday.

I'd love to hear from personal experience in the area! Thanks so much :)
