Tri-State Tranquility: Enjoy a Weekend of Unwinding



When you get to this part of the country, mentions of New York City begin to dwarf the conversation. Those who know better realize the tri-state area of New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania offer a lot, especially those who know how to budget time.

Mohonk Mountain House

This 250-room monstrosity was built in the mid-1800s. It hosts its own private lake so goers can enjoy a range of water and land activities. There’s swimming, boating, fishing, and ice skating during the winter months. It’s a great escape for couples or the entire family.

Cape May

This sleepy shore town is packed with beauty and history. This is the place to go for a restful weekend with your significant other. Stay in Victorian bed and breakfast inns, enjoy the sea-based cuisines, and shop within the chic boutiques. Oh, and if you have a sweet tooth, the saltwater taffy shops are going to be a treat!

Bethany Beach

Situated on the Delaware Seashore, Bethany Beach is a charming coastal town known for its pristine beaches and relaxed atmosphere. With its laid-back vibe and breathtaking views, it’s the perfect destination for relaxation and rejuvenation. The town is also known for its culinary delights. From fresh seafood to local favorites, there are numerous places to eat in Bethany Beach that will satisfy your taste buds and leave you craving more.

Nyack Village

Take a train from Grand Central Station over the Hudson River and into the woods to Nyack Village. This Victorian town will bring you back to another time replete with service shops, antique stores, off-Broadway shows, and tasty restaurants. It’s an unassuming destination and a best-kept secret of locals for decades.

Ocean City

If Cape May is for lovers, Ocean City is for families with its amusement piers and family-friendly environment. The entire town is ‘dry,’ which means you will not find any bars within its zip code. It makes for a quieter and safer environment for the kids who have access to plenty of beach breaks and local surf shops. It’s not as far from ‘the city’ as you think. Ocean City is under two hours from your Marriott Renaissance Newark Airport hotel.

Founding Fathers Tour

Philly is a town rich in history, so much that it will make your headspin unless you start somewhere. Head to Philadelphia to take the Founding Fathers Tour, strolling the city streets, viewing houses of the founding fathers, and taking a gander of the Liberty Bell, a symbol of the nation’s commitment to freedom and equality.


Those who entertain a sweet tooth need no introduction to the Hershey brand. There is plenty of amusements for the kids in addition to a miniature animal zoo. Obviously, you need to get involved in the chocolate tasting. There’s more than enough to do at the park, yet you may want to reserve time to ride around the PA countryside.

Devil’s Den

The Devil’s Den is in Gettysburg, where they recreate battle scenes, welcome ghost hunters after dark, and goers take tours of the historic site. Tourists find it interesting to think about how the Confederate and Union shoulders positioned themselves throughout.

Delaware Water Gap

Tourists can be found swimming, boating, and jumping through the waterfalls. The 70,000-acre park contains 27 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Step into Delaware’s colonial past and see farms, villages, and landscapes you can’t find elsewhere in the country.
