  1. Default Suggestions please (NYC to ??? within 250 miles)

    Hi, this is my fist post..

    I am looking for a nice road trip with a destination that has something to do for a late couple (27m and 25f) for a weekend trip in March of this year.

    We live close to NYC and want to travel no more then 250 miles.

    Looking to leave around 6pm on friday and return on sunday evening.

    Our budget is around 400-500 dollars for the trip including gas hotel, and activity.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a location to visit?

    I wasnt sure how to figure out which locations would be within my distance requirement.

    Go buy a paper map and a cheap school pencil compass, and draw a circle around NYC with a 250 mile radius.

    Default A Very Nice Set of Possibilities

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The list of places within 250 miles or so of NYC is actually quite impressive and includes a number of places that would provide quite a contrast to the big city. Prime among these would be the north coast of Long Island Sound as far even as Cape Cod; the Hudson River Valley; the Adirondacks, Catskills, Poconos or Blue Ridge; or the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Have a look at those as destinations initially and see if any appeals to the two of you.
