Any ideas for what to do on the way from NYC to Rochester, NY?

Preferably three or more hours into the way...

Family with infant, three year old and 8 year old.

Any ideas for 2-3 nights somewhere between Monsey and Baltimore? (or up to an hour or two off that route)

Can be low key, ideally somewhat kid-friendly. Any area that I should be looking at on Airbnb?

Looking for winter vak ideas in US.

2 bedroom villa/suite bookable with points, preferably with Marriott 50K certs.

We liked the Marriott Newport Coast hotel in CA but they don't have any point availability on their schedule anymore.

Ive been in the Embassy Suites Destiny USA all week and were loving it. I wrote up a nice weeklong itinerary and researched 70+ attractions nearby. Should be perfect for you.

Does anyone know any (hyatt, marriot, IHG) resort that has rooms/suites that come with a private pool bookable with points?
Some that I see, when actually check up the dates, comes up that the hotel isn't accepting points)

Not sure if there is a better place to ask but does anyone have ideas for a sunny vacation for my wife and me? Leaving from NY and want to spend about a week somewhere warm where the activities are not super expensive (e.g. jet skiing or whatever else) and there is some reasonable access to kosher food (don't need 5 restaurants but 1/2 would be good - also willing to forgo if easy to get from other places like a Chabad or something).

Was thinking DR, Costa Rica, or something similar and curious what the experts here have to say. Don't want to travel to Hawaii or across the Atlantic because we are leaving the kids at home.

TIA

Key west

And activities are affordable there? I was avoiding FL because I felt that activities would be costly and wanted to get more bang for buck.
