Where should my family with 2 toddlers travel for week-long vacation in June based out of the Mid-Atlantic?

I will have a 1.5 year old and ~4.0 year old by June. We have a week or so off. I have a bunch of frequent flier miles. I can spend maybe $2k additional on the week including car rental/lodging. In past years we've gone to Austin, TX; Portland, ME; Gold Coast (Halifax area) of Nova Scotia; and east side of Prince Edward Island. Leaving out of DC area.
We like small quirky, kid-friendly towns in drivable distance to fun stuff, eg, museums, beaches, parks, shops crammed with random stuff, and food carts/great cheaper eats. Slower pace, where we go on one "outing" per day between nap times and chill out in a house/condo from a HomeAway rental and eat takeaway or very early dinners. I am thinking about Montreal or Jacksonville but really would love some more ideas from MeFites.
I am most interested in places that are nonstop flights! (Or <7 h drive) I'm not opposed to international if it is not overly stressful. If you need more details to help guide me please let me know.
