Good family place to visit after DC?

Hi

We have family coming to visit us in May for a week, and they then want a week at a second location. They are a couple with two kids, 1 and 3, and don't want to fly within the US as they're travelling a long way to get to us. Any family friendly suggestions that are within driving / train distance that would keep them busy / happy for a week? Could be beaches, parks or something else entirely!

I don't have kids so have no idea what would work for that age.

Any ideas gratefully received

Thanks!

Not really beach time yet. NYC, Williamsburg?

There is a wildlife preserve at Chincoteague Island, VA, with ponies and more, which my niece and her family love and go visit every year. Only catch is if you get a rainy couple of days, not much to do. It's a budget vacation to do with kids though.It's about 3 hours drive from DC. There are beaches and the kids could play but may not be swimmable weather yet in May.

I would not take that age kids to Hershey. If Dutch Wonderland is open that is a better option or Sesame Place.
