Hi,

Please help me plan a weekend getaway for just me and my husband, not more than a 2 hour drive from Lakewood. I like nice accommodations - I.e. a luxury / fancy feel, and not more than 10 minute walk to a minyan... with restaurants and / or some other attractions for Thursday, Friday, and Sunday...

Thank you!

I like Philadelphia. Restaurants not in center city but there are shuls. Be aware that you should find out in advance what there shuls covid restrictions are in that many aren’t allowing non members. there’s lots of nice hotels in center city.

Any other suggestions with the same Covid caveats re: shuls

As far as I know (I’ve been to both) there’s the historic shul Mikva Israel and Chabad. I’ve been to both and they are close to one another. What I do is I google the addresses, the. Do ‘search nearby’ for hotels and sort the directions by ‘walking’

Obviously Manhattan is amazing In terms of hotels and restaurants but most shuls are extremely strict with covid but you could look into it.

If it's open now the Eastern State Penitentiary is unique and really cool to explore. There's also the Franklin Institute (science museum), a really interesting museum called the Museum of Jewish American History, the mint, Liberty Bell, Independence Hall. But definitely check to see if they're currently open and with what restrictions. Outdoors there's the zoo and nearby Longwood Gardens and Winterthur.

Deal/Long Branch is beautiful and the hotels are really nice and not too far from the shul
