Washington D.C. and NYC. Summer. What to do in between??

Jump to last reply

I would really appreciate any suggestions or feedback on my itinerary.

Summer travel for me and my family (wife and two kids -9 and 11-). We will be traveling to East Coast from 07/ 5 to 07/18, and the plan is to combine city and nature.

TRAVEL ITINERARY
07/05 - Lands at JFK approx. at 6 AM. And move towards Washington D.C. by car.
07/06 - 07-08. Washington D.C.
07/08- Leave Washington D.C.
07/14 – to 07/18 NYC.

We have no hotel reservation yet from 07/08 to 07/14.

We are interested in Philadelphia and Atlantic City, and to stay in a campground (tent camping) or a hotel-motel, near nice places to visit or trails in the woods, lake or beach to spend the day there. We will rent a car for those days.

My Questions:
1.- Would you suggest any particular place in Maryland (Ocean City), New Jersey (Cape May, Wildwood) or Delaware (Rehoboth or Dewey Beach) to stay with Kids.

2.- Is it worth to go to Philadelphia and Atlantic City, or we better stay in NYC and D.C. and then head to the country side?

Thanks for all the inputs you guys going to provide.
