Hmmm, what about a B&B around Niagara falls? Although, that’s not really on the way to D.C.

I would fly into Charlottesville VA and do a week at the wineries, presidential estates, and Shenandoah National Park.  It should be absolutely gorgeous in the fall with the leaves turning, and there are oodles of cute bed and breakfasts.  You could rent a car and drive around there and then either drive back to DC or take Amtrak back (there is a direct line from Charlottesville to Union Station).

We roadtripped for our honeymoon.  It was a blast.  We drove from California to Montana and spent a week in Glacier Nat’nl park then drove back to California and to Washington State 🙂

You could always do a long weekend in a city like NYC, Boston or Philly on your way back. You should be able to find flights pretty easily and can look online for a hotel deal.

If you want to go off the beaten path maybe a hotel in the mountains (NH or VT). There’s a super cute one in NH that offers rooms with their own fireplaces overlooking a lake and has a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool. It’s called the Inn at Church Landing and Mill Falls (there are actually 4 hotels owned by the same company). http://millfalls.com/ (I just looked it up). The weather shold be pretty decent still and you’ll have fall leaves, day hikes and maple syrup!

I would absolutely recommend NH in the fall!!!  I have lived here my entire life and am moving to TX soon and one thing I will miss is the amazing foliage!  I also second going to the Inn at Mill Falls – it is beautiful!!!!  Although I may be bias because it is the venue for our wedding lol  But we chose it because it is right on the water and the hotel is very nature-ish and pretty!
