Hi all, thought I'd use the forum for some personal vacation research. Some background: This past year, about a dozen friends and I rented a house for a week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. (http://www.carolinadesigns.com/cdfin...aster/270m.asp) It was like living in a Pottery Barn catalog. We had a great time and want to plan another trip for late spring 2006. We are mostly based out of Washington, DC, so we're interested to see what else these mid-atlantic states have to offer. The most important thing is finding a rental property that can accomdate 10-20 people. We enjoyed our OBX place so much we hardly strayed from the property or the nearby beach. One place we've discussed is the Poconos, to give you an idea of the lines we're thinking along. You know, somewhere where we can all hang out that happens to have mounatins or a lake or some other nice attractions nearby. Thanks for your attention, looking forward to discussing.
