In my opinion, you must consider North Carolina. Whilst residing in the USA, I had on occasions to make journeys to Wilmington for the beach as well as Pisgah and Tsali for the trails.
I must say, these places are at opposite directions of the state but nonetheless may be convenient if you were to make a flight into Charlotte and each rent cars.
Ask if you need details.

That's a good suggestion, though it might be too late for this year's trip. My wife got into diving when she was in Cozumel a few years back. For our anniversary that year, she signed us up for diving lessons. Not only is diving great, but the lessons became our date night. We'd get a babysitter, go to dinner and study for the quizzes, then go for a drink after the sessions. (And we did our certification dives in mid-Novemeber off the Oregon coast!)Trail Punk said:Then you'll love it when she wants a beach vacation.
