Weather this time of year? Probably unbearable, no?

Why don't you hop over to Colorado? There is nice PH in Beaver Creek at foots of the mountains.
Never been there but struck into it while doin research for my own.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Too far, looking for a short trip (doing a longer one at the end of the summer)
Also cmiiw but reward availability to Denver ain't so great

Also, AA doesn't fly direct to DEN so prob not worth using Avios.

How about New Hampshire's White Mountains? Plenty of hikes and other activities to do. 7 hour drive from NYC.
See my little trip report here http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=2527.msg26512#msg26512
You can also visit Boston on the way home.

If you're thinking Canada, how about checking out Ottawa? Plenty of attractions there including museums, Parliament Hill, and the must see changing of the guards. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g155004-Activities-Ottawa_Ontario.html
No clue about flight availability. I think it's a 3 hour drive from Montreal.

OP says in title he is looking for 'vacation', so I doubt Toronto is the one he is looking for, its more for attractions/sightseeing. He should look for some resort type of plase.

Huh? Why can't you have a sightseeing vacation?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

If it happens it'll probably be to there or a drive to Baltimore.
Toronto makes a lot of sense. A nice amount to do, kosher food, plenty of award availability. I'll definitely do it eventually, the question is will it work out now

A simple google search of Quebec city will show you it is a tourist destination, whereas Toronto is not. Iy'h will be there soon and will tell you exactly what u missed.

@ergel not nice of you as I'm just trying to help you. Why are you doing that for me? I gain nothing by helping you, just trying to figure a dest to fit your needs.
From my perspective, vacation is  relaxing, so you should prefer resort. Attractions are a totally different thing. Has an other purpose, so you should look for very different ideas.
My opinion. Take it or leave it.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

but if I'm doing LGA-DFW-EGE using avios, does it make sense?
Is it not worth using avios because its not direct?
