Just something to get away. We go to the beach almost every weekend. Its nice to have a free room. But we're looking for something different. Doesn't have to be in state. Was thinking Atlantic city but is gonna be busy for the weekend I bet.
Ever been to Long Beach Island in NJ? Very family oriented and lots of shoping plus clean beaches. I used to live there for a couple of years and loved it. There's no boardwalk so there isn't any of the crap that usually comes along with it. You can go to the top of Barnegat Lighthouse and get a great view of the island and there's also a small amusement park that you can also get a good view of the island from their ferris wheel.

Thought for the day:
Some people are like Slinkies... They don't really have a purpose, but they still bring a huge smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.......
Forget the beaches.
Drive down into the mountains of Virginia / West Virginia, find a nice little motel in some tiny mountain town, and just enjoy the drive and an unusual spot. My wife and I like the Montvallee Motel (http://www.montvalleemotel.com/) in Monterey VA. Some of the scenery in that area is excellent.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
Last Mem day weekend, the wife and I packed up the jeep and went to Hatteras (OBX) for the weekend. We camped right among the dunes and it was $12 a night. We were allowed open fires on the beach and had access to showers, etc. Far enough away from everything, but close enough to grab a pizza from the Gingerbread House. Awesome weekend!
