Completely indecisive person seeking an end of September/early October 3-4 day trip from DC - short drive, train, or plane trip for around 1k. No idea where I want to go, but the only must is a room/balcony with a really beautiful nature view. [more inside]
Hi, wonderful Mefites! I am thinking of driving from DC to New York City for a wedding next Thursday (the 22nd). Google tells me that driving time (from DC to an address on W 159th) is just shy of 4 hours. Considering that this will be a weekend, and holiday weekend, what is a more realistic driving time?

I'd like to celebrate my SOs upcoming grad school graduation by taking him on a cute surprise trip. We are in the greater DC metro area and I would really like to get out of DC, but can only do one or two nights over the weekend. My SO is not much of city person, or else I would probably do NYC. Ideally it would be no more than 3 hours by car; or alternatively I am open to a flight or train ride that is not too long. We previously did Asheville NC and really enjoyed it. Charlottesville is close to what I think I am looking for, but we go there frequently already. Any ideas? My SO really enjoys things related to Architecture and Landscape Architecture if that helps.
I'll be in DC next/this weekend. Where should we eat, what should we see? Shorter events are appreciated! [more inside]
Help us plan a trip on REALLY short notice! [more inside]
Planning a quick respite. A brief reprieve from the ridiculousness of life. I'm thinking a day out of DC, (maybe) overnight, somewhere picturesque, would be just the ticket! Where should I go? [more inside]
Are there some interesting places to stop from Asheville to D.C.? [more inside]
