Karen-like yourself, I'm 47 and looking for a place to head alone for 1 week either end of August or some time in September for some relaxation and some sight seeing. I really don't care too much for nightlife. Enjoy the beach, but can't bake too long due to sensitive skin.

On my possible lists are: Maine, Laguana Beach CA, Napa CA, Park City, UT, Vail CO, Sedona, AZ, Nantucket, MA.

How about Nantucket, MA? They should have direct flights in the summer from many Northeast cities. Cute cozy island, plenty of B&B's and Inns, although might be pricey in summer, but rates in September drop considerably. Can also take the ferry over to Martha Vineyard for the day if you like that kind of thing.

How about Charleston? It's a really pretty city with beach nearby. Nantucket would be good too.

free2b, you don't say where you're from, but if you've never been to Nantucket, it's just wonderful. I used to go right after Labor Day which is a great time. Fewer crowds, warm water, very relaxing.

mclaurie-I went to Nantucket about 2 years ago mid September, and you are right, it was wonderful! We did a bus tour from Albany NY for 4 days, but we needed more time to explore on our own/rent bikes/sit on the beach, etc. I'm sure Nantucket is beautiful in the late May/June as well.
