Death Valley, the hottest place in the world, fwiw

Big Sur, Mt Tamalpais, Mt Diablo, Hills around Silicon Valley, Stinson Beach, Mendocino, Humboldt, Redwood Forest, Sequiao National Park.

That's unbeatable.
Death Valley is quite a trip from SF(over 8 hours).

The only mountains in the east that rival those in New Hampshire are in North Carolina. I personally prefer the New England shore to the rest of the east coast but again there are arguments that are valid for the more southerly beaches.

Its also telling that New Yorkers/Jersians go to Maine, New Hampshire and Cape Cod while people from the Boston area really don't go to the Catskills, Poconos or Jersey Shore

Just that I had said at the bottom "though neither of them can beat San Francisco."

You're right, I thought it was more like 5 for some reason

Is this a joke?

You ever heard of the Adirondacks? They're larger than anything on the East Coast. You can fit New Hampshire in the Adirondacks.

Honestly, it's so annoying how underrated they are on here. It almost pisses me off how oblivious people are.

New Yorkers and Jerseyans go to the Catskills and Adirondacks. I would know. I rent my cabin to them constantly.

Per Wikipedia:

Adirondack Park is 9,375 sq mi.

New Hampshire is 9,349 sq mi.

This obviously doesn't even include the Catskills.

As if New Yorkers and Jerseyans actually skip both the Catskills and Adirondacks which rival and surpass in size anything in New Hampshire, especially considering they're hours closer.

You cannot possibly be this ignorant, but you're from Boston so this is expected. Head couldn't be any larger.

As someone else mentioned, most of the areas south of Boston, and even Vermont, are also accessible from NYC.


Imo Philly beats both, since its much more centrally located in the Boswash, but I'd say NYC > Boston here, just because its closer to Philly, so slightly more centrally located than Boston.
Same. Of the two choices given, I favor New York, but I'd choose Philly.

I'm thinking New York City, all of New Jersey, Delaware, DC and Northern Virginia, Maryland, the Brandywine Valley, Amish country, as far west as Gettysburg, and as far North as the Poconos.

We're talking about weekend trips, not a regional vacation. I don't want to spend too much time driving if I've only got two days. Three days, I go a bit further.
