Need Info to plan Spring Trip to PA

Jump to last reply

I'm just beginning to do research for a trip in the Spring (2014) to Pennsylvania with my husband and elderly parents. We'll be flying into DC or Baltimore depending on flight prices and times and renting a car. We've been to DC twice in the past several years. The first time spending time in DC, Charlottesville, and along the Skyline Highway. The second trip we spent of couple of days in DC and then headed south to Williamsburg/Newport News. Both trips were in the Fall and we had beautiful weather. This time we'd like to go in the Spring and head north of DC to PA. Some possible stops along the way might be Gettysburg, Baltimore, and possibly Philadelphia (if there is time). Not counting flight days, we will probably have 6 days to site-see. When we travel, we like to take in history/museums, beautiful scenery, local culture, and good food (dives to gourmet - Italian, Mexican, Seafood/Crab Shacks, good old farm food to organic nouveau cuisine ). So my initial questions for anyone who can help would be:

1. What kind of weather should we expect in late April and will trees/plants be green and/or flowering yet?

2. If we want to experience the countryside and some Pennsylvania Dutch towns and history, where should we go?

3. How much time should we set aside for Gettysburg (my parents can't do a lot of walking)?

4. If you only had one day to spend in Baltimore, how would you spend your time?

5. Same question for Philadelphia....if you had one day, how would you spend your time? BTW, are there areas of Baltimore and Philadelphia we should avoid?

5. Would welcome restaurant suggestions for any locations along the loop from DC to Gettysburg, to Philadelphia, to Baltimore, and then back to DC.

6. Given the info I have provided, is there a location north of DC that would make a good "home" spot to do day trips from so that we aren't moving from hotel to hotel?
