For a weekend, where can we escape DC?

My friend has a milestone birthday coming up, and he'd like to get out of DC for the weekend. I've been tasked to be part of the party planning committee. Travelers would be a group (8-15) of 20somethings.
-outdoorsy (we won't be doing anything crazy, but might like to hike/canoe/kayak)
-near water (beach or lake)
-can drink beer in relative solitude, preferably outdoors
-within 2-3 hours of DC
-preferably, accessible by some sort of public transportation (I don't think we'll get this)
Suggestions so far:
-Assateague (I think this would be great, except it's the pony weekend, which rules it out)
-Ocean City (which sounds crowded and not so fun)
-Rehobeth (which also sounds crowded and not so fun)
-we all were just in Canaan Valley, but really enjoyed being there - it's just too far for this short of a trip
