travelling in Christmas from Pittsburgh

Hello,

I would like to travel with my significant other from Pittsburgh somewhere nice during Christmas. The problem is that we do not have a car, so we need something accessible by a train / bus / flight (in that preference order).

Our budget is something like $1000 for staying in a hotel during christmas for 2/3 nights and transporation. Can someone recommend on a good place to stay that is reachable by public transportation and is accessible by train from Pittsburgh in a reasonable amount of time?

We are lost and cannot find anything :( Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Are you looking for big city? Country setting? Is renting a car once you get there out of the question?

I am looking for something in the country, but it would be nice if it is close to a town... does not have to be a city. Renting a car is unfortunately impossible for both of us, we do not have a driving license.

Thanks for your reply.

lonolf....Have you considered going to Nemacolin Woodlands in Fayette County?

You could take a bus from Pittsburgh to Uniontown.

Nemacolin Woodlands offers shuttle service from Uniontown. It is a short ride from Uniontown.

It is a fabulous resort. We have a cabin @ 15 minutes from there.

They great packages. You could spend the 2 or 3 days there with plenty to keep you busy.

You can check out their web with all the info as far as packages, rates, & all the activities they have to offer in a beautiful setting.
