Now is the time to take advantage of hidden gems in your area that you just haven’t explored yet. The East Coast has so many places you don’t want to miss. The best part? You can enjoy them in a day!

Tybee Island, Georgia

This little barrier island sits right off the coast of Savannah, Georgia, and features 5 miles of coastline! You can spend the day lounging on one of the many beaches, surfing, fishing, and shell hunting. If you’re more of an attraction hound, visit the Tybee Island Lighthouse Museum, Fort Pulaski National Monument, or the Marine Science Center. This little island also offers outdoor activities like ecology trips and kayaking!

Chincoteague Island, Virginia

Another little island with a lot to offer! Chincoteague is a barrier island off of the coast of Virginia that is famous for its wild ponies. Sit on the beach and relax, find some shells, and watch the ponies roam the beach! It also has a lot of small-town charm with plenty of small restaurants to try while you’re there for the day.

Charlottesville, North Carolina

This little town sits at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and offers visitors a Southern experience like no other. Boasting more than 30 orchards and vineyards, Charlottesville has a lot to see. Stroll the vineyards, visit the bricked downtown mall, or go shopping at any of the boutiques. Don’t forget to stop in and enjoy some of the incredible restaurants while you’re there!

St. Augustine, Florida

This city in Florida is full of history to be explored! There are many historical sites to visit, such as Castillo de San Marcos, Fort Matanzas, and the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum. You can also visit the St. Augustine Zoological Park, where you can see every living species of crocodile!

The White Mountains

These mountains are considered the crowned jewels of New Hampshire. These mountains have some of the best hiking trails you can find, while tourists can enjoy some stunning mountain views on the aerial tramway. They offer a lot of adventure activities, including mountain biking, waterslides, and horseback riding.

Ocean City, Maryland

This little city has plenty to offer for your single-day vacay, and many of them aren’t costly.
