Searching for some R and R that won't break the bank?
You don't have to go to Napa for wine tasting and gorgeous scenery. Do your research and find an area close by (or easy enough to get to by car) that's known for its grape growing. You can spend a glorious afternoon tasting vino and picnicking outside. Make it an overnight excursion by checking into a charming, affordable bed and breakfast.
If you live in the New York area, head to the sprawling, award-winning vineyards of Long Island's North Fork region. If you live near Washington DC, drive just 45 minutes outside to picturesque Leesburg, Virginia and its surrounding wineries. (The Norris House Inn is a fabulous little B&B that offers a wine tasting tour/overnight stay package.) Cleveland peeps - in the Midwest, wineries are popping up everywhere!
