We will be traveling to Washington D.C. this upcoming June and we're wanting to take a long weekend (Fri-Monday) to an area outside of D.C. We have two kids ages 12 &14. There is so much to see and do that we are having trouble deciding what would be most interesting. We already have a couple days set up in the Charlottesville area before heading to D.C., so we can mark that off the list.
My questions are: Given our three night time frame, what are some recommendations on where to go? After looking up information on Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown, I'm kinda wondering if it's worth the extra time, or if it's just a big tourist trap? Also, would it be more interesting to hang out and explore in Chincoteague? What are some opinions?
