My husband and I have a rare free weekend coming up. We'd love to go away for that weekend. The problem we are finding is that the conventional recommendations don't work for us! Hoping someone can help us find a stress-free getaway.

My husband has MS and walks with loftstrand crutches. He can walk solidly for about 15 min before he needs a long break. A lot of the 'weekend getaway' recs center around hopping on Metro North or LIRR and doing a lot of things on foot. They also center on activities that tend to be more outdoors/sporty. We are looking for something a little more relaxing.
What we are looking for:
- Amtrak or train accessible destination with good taxi transportation withing the town
- Small/medium town where there is a central/thriving downtown - think central lodging, food and entertainment or arts withing a few blocks.
- in lieu of a central downtown area (or in addition to!) a spa or resort type of lodging would be great - we are flexible on budget.
Any help or suggestions are appreciated. I've been looking quite a bit but without having been to these destinations I am wary of picking a place and having it be stressful.
I should note we are in our mid-30's and enjoy good food and wine, so extra points for a thriving restaurant and bar scene.
