Not yet. Tried calling a few hotels in PA and Delaware but all their pools were closed...

Good point. Was thinking a bit too big :)
Which ones would you recommend?
At the moment can't recommend didn't visit yet but I saw Watkins Glen State Park or Robert H. Treman State Park looks pretty nice and just few hour drive

I really don't recommend Watkins Glen. Unless you just hike the first 20 minutes and turn back. The rest is extremely uphill steps climbing without anything exciting to see.

Any ideas for driving distance from NJ for July 4th Shabbos? Somewhere that would have kosher/Shabbos set up? Not Niagara.

Looking for an idea for a family with kids for two weeks, preferably driving distance from NJ or inexpensive tickets. New Hampshire/Maine is a possibility but looking for some other ideas as well.

Cleveland, Charlotte, Austin TX, Ft Myers and Nashville all have tickets for $50 or less RT from EWR on United. Iv'e been to all those places besides Ft Myers and they all have stuff to do but not 2 weeks worth. CLT is about a 3 hour drive to the Smokey Mountains and on to Gatlinburg TN

The Smokey Mountains is really nice. Allegiant flies non-stop EWR-TYS every Monday.

The GSM are breathtaking.
You can also fly from NYC to CLT on AA or UA nonstop RT for as low as $35 (or to BNA on UA for $51).

Was told by a hotel in Maine that the restriction is you need to quarantine 2 weeks before you can stay at hotel

Am I crazy that I plan on traveling internationally in August?
I don't know where yet, but I plan on opening the map and seeing what's open. I had the virus and had antibodies, so it doesn't worry me, but seems like I'm the only one thinking this way so I'm doubting myself.
