I think I've become one of those New Yorkers who calls everything outside of the city "the country."

My boyfriend and I are thinking of taking a weekend trip to get out of the city on either of the first two weekends in June. We don't have much money. I'd like to find someplace that fits the following criteria:
- has clean, comfortable hotels or motels for $115 per night or less (ideally less)
- is either (in order of preference) accessible by train or bus from Manhattan within three hours or accessible by car from Manhattan within three hours
- is in naturally beautiful country, whether forest, beach or what have you
- has at least a few options for fun, inexpensive things to do beyond things like hiking, swimming, and hanging out
Specific recommendations for lodging are particularly appreciated.
