Grandma has offered to take the kids and my wife and I are looking for a getaway from NYC. We have a car.
Of course, there are plenty of special snowflake requirements:
We've lived in the area our whole lives, so we've visited a lot of the obvious ones (Philly, Boston, Mystic, Jersey Shore...etc.), and while we're not dead-set against re-visiting, we'd love to go somewhere new.
It's a short trip, and the goal is to keep it low-stress - and maybe to actually de-stress - so we'd love somewhere within 90 miles or so.
Also, I don't know how to describe it exactly, but we'd love a spot that works like a casino - without, um, being a casino. Like: there's a bunch of spots to drink, walk, eat, shop, maybe a spa...and then with a five-minute walk we can be back at our room.
Alternately, a hotel/b&b/something that has a nice bar/lounge to hang out, drink, eat, relax in would work.
All of this is negotiable...if you have a crazy idea, lay it on me (we've thought, "Let's buy plane tickets the day of!" but haven't seen fares/cities we're good with). Thank you!
