Family trip - Washington DC and ?

Jump to last reply

We are putting together a summer trip for our extended family - myself and my husband (mid-30s), my mom, aunt, and uncle (all late 50s), another uncle (mid-40s), and a couple cousins (uncle's kids ages 10 and 12). One uncle is attending an event in Washington DC and invited my mom along and the rest of us decided it sounded fun, so now we have a whole group.

The trip will be in August, last about a week, and start in DC. We are all coming from CA except my aunt, who is coming from PA. After a few days in DC seeing the sites there, we want to spend the remaining time somewhere along the coast within a couple hours' drive of DC, but as none of us are particularly familiar with the eastern seaboard, I am looking for ideas about where to go. Chesapeak Bay has been mentioned as a possibility.

Ideally we would like to rent a house or condo, or stay at a smallish resort/hotel where we can all hang out together but also have the ability to split off into smaller groups for activities or just have lazy-sit-in-a-patio-chair-and-read time. We'd like a laid back sort of place in an area where we can relax, see the local area, take a day trip or two to interesting places nearby. We are interested in natural beauty, history, local culture, some shopping, neat towns, boating, swimming, biking, walking/hiking, photography, beachcombing, bumming around without a destination. None of us are golfers. We don't need much nightlife to speak of although a place that doesn't roll up the sidewalks at 5pm would be nice - we like to go out to dinner, maybe have an after dinner stroll and get some ice cream, check out a pub that has some live music, etc. Access to a pool would be fun, but not necesary.

Afterwards my husband and I plan to head up to NJ by ourselves to visit some friends.
