Brunch and a hike within an hour of Washington, DC?

My wife and I would like to spend a nice Saturday going for a hike with our dog (nothing too taxing - we want to enjoy the outdoors, not get a workout) and also go for brunch in a charming small town nearby. We live in DC and would prefer not to drive more than an hour each way to get there. Any suggestions??

Overnight dog friendly hiking trip?

Where can myself, a friend, and our dogs go for a sweet overnight trip near LA next week? We'd like to do some hiking and some casual beer drinking, and we'd like to be able to get a cheap hotel room and not drive more than 3 hours or so. Also, although we're both in good shape, his dog is 12 years old and mine is a wimpy shih tzu so the hike should be fairly easy and would ideally have some access to water. I think it's too cold to camp, but if there's somewhere warmish we're open to that. Lay it on me, mefi!

Low impact 10 day loop hike in lower 48?

My brother and I are contemplating a week to 10-day long loop ultralight hike. Ideally, it would be somewhere in the lower-48 states, and be casual, but NO mountains, so suggestions like the Appalachian or the PCT are out. It doesn't have to be wilderness, but ideally, we'd be camping all the way.
