My Favorite Places to Camp on the East Coast.
Four great getaways along the East Coast include places from New York to North Carolina. I have chosen four areas that make great weekend getaways or make great vacations for couples, individuals or families. Each of these places serves its purpose for rest as well as pleasure, adventure and new things to experience.
A beautiful place to visit in New York is a place called Chautauqua Institution. Chautauqua Institution is a gated community where visitors can experience the arts, philosophy recreation, and religion. There is a multitude of entertainment within the gated community from concerts to lectures to opera. The season of events during the summer runs for nine weeks. People stay in beautiful century-old homes within the community or nearby hotels or cottages around Chautauqua Lake. It is a beautiful location and a beautiful vacation for an individual, couple, family or group of friends.
Another excellent place for a weekend getaway or more extended vacation is Niagara Falls, also in New York. It is considered the honeymoon capital of the world and one of the seven wonders of the world. Just walking around and seeing the Falls can take all day or more but there are several other attractions at the Falls including a ride on The Maid Of The Mist. This is the boat that takes you right down into the mist under the Falls and an excellent experience. A huge Casino brings thousands of people to the Niagara Falls to try their luck on the slot machines. Several marriages take place in the beautiful gardens surrounding the Falls. There are several places to stay, and nightlife is plentiful as well.

Traveling further south along the east coast brings us to Williamsburg, Virginia. What a beautiful, historic place. While visiting Colonial Williamsburg the experience that will make you feel as if you’ve been taken back in time as you walk through what it must have been like in years gone by. People even dress and play the part of people in colonial times to make it seem real. Also in Williamsburg is Busch Gardens where families love to spend time. Jamestown, Virginia is close by and another great historical place to visit with replicas of the Mayflower, huge Tepees, and other historical reenactments. And if your family likes water, don’t miss the water park located very close to Williamsburg, Virginia. A short drive takes you to a day at Virginia Beach as well.
Even further south you will find a fantastic sight when visiting the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The sand dunes are the most fantastic sight. Climbing the dunes and seeing nothing but sand for miles and miles is a breathtaking experience. Just walking or climbing is excellent, but some several take photos, fly kites, make sand angels like you would snow angels. Another great thing about the Outer Banks, of course, are the beaches. Not only are they great for sunbathing but you may even see a wild horse as wild horses run along the beaches in some regions of the outer banks.

Pristine beaches and some of the best shopping outside of Manhattan have made Southhampton a desirable beach destination for years. Northern enough to keep the worst of the summer heat away, it’s a great location for anybody looking to relax while on the beach.
