5 hours puts you in Ocean City, MD or Washington, DC. Neither place will have much going on in February. Better bet would be a cruise out of NYC.


Funny - I was going to make those two Suggestions - maybe add Rehoboth Beach - all are Fun and Have a LOT GOING ON.

DC is never boring - in a lifetime of living near and visiting often we still go and still enjoy and Discover.

The Beach has become a year round destination - lot fewer people but you will still likely need reservations to get a Campsite - I'd look at Indian River Inlet in Delaware - right across from the Beach and close to both Rehobothe and OC - [emoticon]

We all see things differently - if you want to go go go DC might work if you want to sit back relax and maybe catch a good meal the Beach would work.

Best of luck, let us know what you decide.

I don't think you'll need a reservation in February. February is still very much winter in the Delmarva. Going to the Delmarva beaches is not my idea of fun in Feb. lots of attractions are closed
The DC attractions still go on but most of those are indoors anyway.
Spend a few more hours driving and the OP can make it to luke warm temps.

With kids in 5th and 7th grade, your gonna need to get to warmer weather for them to be able to do a lot outside... Like stated above, I spend 4 or 5 trips a year to the Delmarva beaches and would NOT want to be there in Feb. Most if not all attractions will be closed, and the cold wind will be whipping up any boardwalk...

If it were me, I would tough it out a few more hours and make it to DC for indoor stuff...

Virginia has several state parks open year round. Four parks with developed campgrounds have full service camping available. Visit Shenandoah River, Douthat, Hungry Mother and Pocohantas. We stayed at the Shenandoah River and Pocohantas. Both are nice and both have hookups.We stayed at the first one over Christmas one year.

There are very few campgrounds open in the Northeast in Nov-Mar, but they do exist. I don't necessarily recommend camping in such cold weather but there are places to do so if you are determined.

As somebody who does enjoy the challenge (and lack of crowds) of off-season camping, it REALLY REALLY REALLY bugs me that campgrounds don't generally list their seasons anywhere on the websites. So I have to call dozens of campgrounds to find one. I complain to them about this and they generally respond with something really lame like "It's not the same date every year so we won't do that".

The already mentioned Otter Lake just into PA off I-80. Indoor pool, sauna, hot tubs. Not sure what else is open during the winter. http://www.otterlake.com
