Weekend getatway within 4 hours of NJ

Jump to last reply

I know there are a lot of topics on getaways and I have read through most of them but would still like to post this question.

Husband and I would like to getaway mid August for our anniversary without the kids. We live in central NJ and would like a place that is no more than 4 or 5 hours away. Closer to home would be better but we are willing to go up to 5 hours away

We have been to Bucks County / Lambertsville many times as day trips and really not interested in doing a weekend there.

What we are looking for is somewhere romantic maybe on the water either ocean, river or lake. We aren't into hiking and such but love charming towns that we can walk around. We are both foodies.

We have never been away on our own since the kids have been born except to Atlantic city overnight, which I do not consider a romantic getaway.

Any and all suggestions would be welcomed.
Thank you
