We are a family of five who are visiting USA East Coast in Dec 13 and will be needing to go to Durham Nth Vig for one night and will be driving back to Washington DC. We plan to make this a 4 day trip and have a look around . We have 3 nights where we can drive and stay in one or two places and are really looking for the smaller towns with something to do when in winter . We are not overly active as my wife has a knee condition so we are looking for quaint towns with nice B&B or hotels that can sleep 5 ( 2 rooms ) and love good food .
We have studied Maryland and think that Cape Charles and St Micheal's are likely candidates however we don't want to spend all the time in car driving from place to place .
We are interested in Civil war history somewhat but love quirky things we would not see in Australia .
Hopefully you may have some suggestions .
