My friend and I want to go on vacation in late May, somewhere in the US. No relaxing and lying around by a body of water. No touristy stuff. Where should we go?

My friend and I live in NYC and we're hoping to go on a 4-5 day vacation in late May. I"m at a complete loss of where to go. All the places I really want to visit (Greece, South America, Antarctica) are a little too far away for a quick trip!
Here's what I'm looking for - a great city/neighborhood with lots of restaurants, shops, live music, festivals, art, unusual attractions, ghost tour-esque stuff, things to explore, etc. Hiking, kayaking, maybe swimming would all be a plus. Recent trips I've really enjoyed were to New Orleans, Savannah, and Colorado. Here's what I'm not looking for - just lying around near a pool or beach all day. That would kill me. I'm not one for relaxing vacations.
I think it's too short a vacation to go overseas, but if something really awesome was suggested, I would consider it. I really wanted Iceland but my friend has nixed it. One more thing - it can't be the West Coast, because I'm going there this Fall.
I just gotta get out of NY. Help!
