4-day trip, from Boston, somewhere warm
March 7, 2013 4:13 AM Subscribe
We've only just got our act together to be able to take the same days off work next week - so my husband and I would like to take a quick trip somewhere. BUT - I cant think where to go! We'd be departing from Boston, leaving Thursday anytime, need to be back by sunday noon.
I'd prefer to not have a long drive, or a flight of more than 4 hours, given we dont have a lot of time. I think given the time constraints, we're limited to the east coast USA. But I can't get further than that... Hivemind - help us figure out how to enjoy our first break in a while!
Both of us enjoy going places where there are interesting or historic area to walk around and explore, great food, art galleries to sigh over...
Me: Would love to go somewhere warm.
Him: ability to get outdoors, small towns or rural areas preferred - no big city (so not NYC or DC)

Cities/towns we've enjoyed visiting: Savannah, Montreal, Annapolis
We mostly head to the Berkshires or NH/Vermont when we've done 3-4 day trips like this. While I don't want to deal with cold or snow, we both love the vibe of small NE towns, so anything like that further south would be excellent. Open to renting a car when we get to our destination.
My husband ruled out FL (avoiding students on spring break). I looked at PR , but that was definitely outside our budget. I dont want to spend our savings, but aware that given it's last minute , flights will be pricey. But don't let price stop you - would love any ideas for where we should explore. What are your favorite (warm!) hideaway relaxation spots along the east coast North America?
