Where should we go for a long weekend in March in the mid-Atlantic area?

Looking to meet up with some friends for a relaxing long weekend in mid March. Will be traveling with 6 adults and 2 children under 2, and looking for spots within an easy drive from both Philly and DC. Looking for a destination where we could rent a comfortable 4 bedroom house and have options for some shopping/restaurants/outdoor activities. Would consider a beach destination (NJ/DE/MD) if the town has stuff going on in the off-season. Also open to city destinations (we've considered Baltimore or Annapolis) or even a cabin in the Poconos. Any recommendations welcome!

Low-Key, Gay-Friendly Beach Destinations

My spouse needs a beach vacation. Any suggestions for a low-key, relatively crowd-free, gay-friendly beach destinations? We are in Atlanta, so driving to the Atlantic or the Gulf is Option #1, but we are also willing to take a plane if we can find the right place. Likewise, we're good with a variety of accommodations - hotel, resort, vacation rental, B&B. In general, we like history-culture-art, so that's a plus. And great local restaurants would also be nice.

Looking for suggestions re: public transit, museums, state & national parks. Difficulty level: frugal and carless (unless I rent one to go to the shore), traveling solo.

411 on Baltimore's Little Italy

At a conference in March, I'll be organizing a group of public history colleagues for a dinner conversation. I'd really like skip the hotel restaurants and chains take them to Baltimore's Little Italy neighborhood, but I don't know much about the area. Can you recommend a good place where 15 people could have dinner, ideally in a private room or somewhere easy to hear? And what other sites/stops/points of interest would some geeky historians like to know about? Thanks!

How dangerous will it be to make this drive tomorrow?

How dangerous will it be to take a cab from Columbia MD to Annapolis Junction tomorrow at 9 am? They are forecasting 5-8" of snow. How bad is that for this area? And in a cab? I can cancel if necessary but it's a pretty big deal.

Johns Hopkins job--where to live in or near Baltimore?

My cousin has a job offer at Johns Hopkins (Homewood campus) and is considering a move to Baltimore--but where to live? They have a young kid and so need a good school and a short, preferably car-less commute to work, and would like a walkable, safe area--does this pretty much rule out the city? Coming from brownstone Brooklyn, which they like in most respects. Suggestions?

Where in the world is my clubhouse?

I need to know the name of the street that this building (the big one in the center of the map, with the pool) is on. The number on the door is 1659, but there is no street sign, and neither google nor mapquest show the street name. (Actually, Mapquest doesn't even show the street). "What's here" in google maps gives 201-203 Mohegan Dr, which is close but not correct. Any ideas?
