Looking for a place to visit within 4 hours of New Brunswick

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a fun, quirky place to visit within a 4 hour drive of the New Brunswick area--preferably at least an hour away, but no more than 5 hours. The trip would last from Friday, November 23rd until Saturday, November 24th (2012), and I will be traveling alone (so no need to make it kid-friendly).

Places I'd like to avoid:

1. NYC (I work there, and want to get far, far away)

2. DC (Been there too many times)

3. Most of Pennsylvania (I went to school in Lancaster County, so I'm PA-ed out)

It can take any radius, as long as it's no more than 5 hours away (and preferably no more than 4). Would love to go somewhere with a similar character to Essex County, MA (Rockport, Salem, etc), but closer if possible. Let me know if you have any ideas!

Well, I would head for Newport, RI. Pretty place with accomodations that range from B&Bs to beautiufl hotels, "mansions" to tour , the Cliff Walk, an old fort, beautiful Ocean Drive and good restaurants.

The Mirror Lake Inn is up near Lake Placid. The hotel itself is great with small reading rooms and bars, and you can walk around the lake and the town.

Mystic Seaport (CT) which is also not that far from Newport, RI
