We are coming down from DC for a long weekend and excited to spend the 3 days. Our plan is to spend 1 day in each part of the triangle. Short term goals are to get a feel for the area; things to do, shopping, good places to eat, parks, relax (spa?), have a drink, BUT really want to get a good feel for the area.
My question to you (taking everything above in :-), where would you go and what would you do to get a nice feel for the area and have a nice time doing so?
