I finally have the time and money to really get away this fall and I'd love to hear some ideas for where to go.

I am an urban dweller on the west coast, and have done a fair amount of traveling, but I like the idea of being somewhere for at least a month to really experience a region. Through a family member, I've spent a lot of time in the Rockland/Camden area of Maine which has the perfect combination of good food, water views, history, interesting architecture, outdoor activities, artists, etc. I have up to a month and don't mind moving around a bit within a region. I will most likely be alone for at least some of the time. I'm a 55 yr old woman (it's weird to see that in writing) with a wide range of interests, but also enjoy down time just gazing at a view. I love thunderstorms so interesting weather is a plus. I'm open to anyplace east of the Rockies, rural or urban. My budget, and style, isn't ultra-luxury, but I can spend good money on the right place. The two areas I really haven't experienced at all are the south (except New Orleans) and the upper Midwest. Can't wait to hear your ideas!
