Ideas for 25th Wedding Anniversary Trip - HELP! A day's drive from DC.

Jump to last reply

I tried over and over to specify five states on the east coast, but somehow was incapable.

We recently moved to Washington, D.C. and loving it! We will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and would like to go somewhere for a week a day's driving distance from DC. We are a well travelled couple who have spent many years traveling with our children to many of the states in the US, Europe and Canada. We had booked our trip initially at the Primland Resort (afterall, you only have one 25th wedding anniversary), but our budget and common sense got the best of us (we are still in the midst of a remodel in our new rowhouse in DC, and still own our home in MN - ugh!).

We are looking to really gear down, relax, read, be located in a beautiful, scenic spot where we could get out and walk/hike. We love history (just went to Gettysburg for the first time last weekend and loved it!), arts, good food. It would be nice if there was a town close by to go in for dinner, shopping. Quaint area. I looked at the Blue Ridge Mountains, but I don't know anything about good location. Still researching. We are open to mountains, ocean, just as long as the scenery is beautiful. We have been to Maine, and NYC, but otherwise, most of our travel has been midwest and western US so we are looking forward to seeing new places. Oh, and golf for my husband would be an added bonus. We plan on going the third week of September.

Thank you!
