looking for ideas on destinations for a day get-away...

Oh dear, do we need to get away for a day.

We live just north of Philly near Trenton and we'd really like to get in the car this Sunday morning, and just drive to somewhere that provides a distraction, perhaps something to get us into the Christmas spirit, some good food, something to take our minds off the cares of the world for a day.

We are very williing to drive an hour or two.

I've been reading about the farmer's markets on a post below, particularly Zerns - they appear to be open this Sunday. We do like farmer's markets and fresh food and that kind of thing. If you've been there, is it a place that might fit the bill for us - enough to keep us interested and distracted for a few hours, some good food to eat, etc?

On the other hand, when we were younger, we used to enjoy New Hope for a day - now it just seems crowded and the sidewalks are to skinny for comfortable strolling.

Too cold to go to Ellis Island.

Done Philly to death already.

Did New York in the fall when it was still warm and beautiful.

Use your imagination - any ideas for us that combines a holiday distraction, interesting sites and good food?

Thanks for any suggestions...
