  1. Default Thanksgiving Roadtrip

    So my husband and I are looking for a Thanksgiving roadtrip. We live in NYC and we have two small kids ages 33 months and 17 months.
    Does anyone have any suggestions for the long 4 day weekend?

    Default West, North or South?

    What would you prefer? A winter resort town? The seacoast? Warmer temperatures? What type of attractions?

    The Maine seacoast can be a great destination if you are looking for quietness. You could also head west towards Niagara Falls (~7-8 hours drive) or south to Virginia and explore the Historic Triangle formed by Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown (~ 7 hours drive). Check out this post for more info and to get other east coast ideas. Boston (~4-4½ hours) is also a very plausible destination for a long weekend, especially if you are history buffs and the White Mountains are just a short drive north. Also, don't forget about Vermont's countryside and friendly Burlington.

    For something different, you could come north of the border and explore charming Québec City (~ 8-8½ hours). This City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985 by the UNESCO and is the only city that is still surrounded by its original fortifications in North America. You could go sliding on the Plains of Abraham with the kids and have delicious French crepes with maple syrup. Quebec City is an example of a perfect blend between American and European culture. There's plenty to do and see out there that's for sure! I hope this will help you.
