My boyfriend and I are starting to think about the summer and the idea of a possible mini-getaway. We live in New Jersey (about 30 min from NYC) and are just looking for something relatively inexpensive, relaxing, and just overall enjoyable. Unless we can manage to land cheap tickets or hotel it doesn’t seem that flying is an option - so somewhere within driving distance (3 hours or so) would be ideal. I’m not sure the exact amount of days - possibly the weekend, maybe slightly longer.
He grew up around the Jersey Shore, I lived in the Berkshires most my life, and
we’ve done Atlantic City so those locations are out. We were considering Lake George or the Poconos, but want to know of any other vaca recommendations relatively nearby. We're really not sure of what activities we want to do besides just relax - and the setting doesn't matter. It could be by a lake/outdoorsy, or resort style.
Thanks so much for your suggestions!
