Another suggestion would be Ottowa/Toronto in Canada. I've heard Ottawa is very pretty and Toronto is a modern city with a lot of activities...


Another suggestion would be Burlington Vermont if you want to combine a bit of sight seeing with hiking & biking, etc. There is an option to bike on the old rail trail that is actually pretty deep in the lake itself...

Niagara Falls in Canada


Myrtle Beach, S.C.


Gatlinburg, TN


I would also suggest Las Vegas. It's a little further than 3 hours by plane, but it's a walkable town. Lots to d including tours to the Hoover Dam, lot's of shows and a TON of restaurants. Way more to do than just gambling!

I would have to disagree with Myrtle Beach. It's just a big tourist trap. It's basically outlet shopping with a few cheesy attractions and theme restaurants. Oh yeah, and there might be a beach somewhere nearby.

I love Charleston and Savannah but I'm thinking shrimp and grits. Nashville would be my pick.

We did a walkabout in DC recently and hope to get back to see more of the Smithsonian.

The shoreline goes for miles with many hotels at different price points. Yes, there are a lot of commercial restaurants but many others that are not. We have gone twice and never felt that it was extremely over crowded.

Nonetheless, the OP was not extremely interested in a beach anyway.

buy some berkshire hathaway shares and attend the stock holder's meeting in Omaha NE in May.

the class B shares are only ~$180 per share compared to the class A shares which currently sell for ~$275k per share.

Charleston by a wide margin!

Humidity isn't bad at all early June.

Asheville can't hold a candle to Charleston. My mother's family is all from Charleston and my husband's is from Asheville so I've spent a lot of time in both.

I would not try and do both Charleston and Savannah. Way too much driving for a three day trip.

Very few cities can compare with Charleston historically, architectually, food wise, shopping, or culturally.

How does this work? If you own any shares you can attend? What do you get to see/do? I am genuinely interested.

Thanks again to everyone for the extremely helpful recommendations. We've narrowed down our options and will decide early in 2018. If we can extend to 4 nights the plan is to drive to either Acadia National Park or to Quebec City. If we're limited to 3 nights, we're going to fly to one of Charleston, Savannah or Nashville depending on airfare prices. Again, really helpful responses and much appreciated.
