fingerlakes! We go there every winter for a wine tour – gorgeous. We stay on Seneca Lake. It’s so lovely in the winter, so i can’t imagine how nice in the spring. Other than that, maybe rent a little cabin in the poconos? I wouldn’t recommend driving more than 6 hours for a minimoon.. you’ll be exhausted!

If you’re into wine/history Charlottesville, VA is great.  They have really cute bed and breakfasts down there and apple orchards, Monticello, GREAT wineries, etc.  I recommend the Sugar Hill Inn if you do end up going the B&B route.  My fiance and I had a wonderful and romantic weekend down there.

West Vigirinia – it is pretty rural, but they have great B&B’s there, you can go white water rafting, it is very moutainy.

Vermot is also very beautiful

What about the Catskills?

Another vote for St. Michael’s, MD and Charlottesville, VA. Probably more stuff to do in Charlottesville; St. M’s is more laid back. Also, keep in mind that to get to St. Michaels/the eastern shore of MD, you’ll be driving towards the beach towns (ie with the traffic). Your wedding date appears to be before Memorial Day, so it’s not as much of a concern, but def something to consider.

Bonus points: if you’re a fan of the movie “Wedding Crashers” and you want to see/stay where they filmed the football scene (CRABCAKES AND FOOTBALL YO!), check this place out:

Awesome reviews but unfortunately has a price tag to match… Lots of other awesome B&B’s in the area, fi’s parents go out there every so often, so if you need a hand, just re-post here! 🙂

Oh one other thing…if you’re going to Charlottesville, also be sure to check out when UVA is holding commencement. Awesome campus to explore (and that’s coming from a rival Terp!) but the area gets crazy crowded when graduation’s happening…

Cape Cod, MA? It won’t be beach season but that also means prices will be better and there will be less crowds. I like to go to the Cape in May, Provencetown has whale watching and is generally a cute town. There’s a lot of nature paths and dunes to explore. You could catch a baseball game and eat seafood. There are generally a lot of cute hotels, restaurnats, lighthouses and beaches along the Cape and if you have never been it would make a great weekend trip.

There’s a great little resort called Winvian that’s about 3.5 hours by car from you. It’s very unique. I would highly recommend it.

So funny that you mentioned Finger Lakes because I was thinking that before I even got to the bottom of your post.

My sister’s Brother-In-Law and his wife just got back from there. They had an AMAZING time and the pics were gorg! Fiance and I have definitely added that to our list of places to go, especially since it’s not far from Philly.
