HELP with vacation planning

  1. Hi guys,

    The BF and I are planning our annual summer vacation and we need help picking a place, we're limited to mid to late June because of work and such. We live in NY and we're looking for a nice beach-type towns that are drivable on the east coast. We're staying like a week, so we were thinking like.. Newport, RI... Ocean City, MD or NJ... but we're not sure if there are other cute hidden towns with good food that we can escape to...

    Something nice but not too pricey...since we're right out of college with only signing bonuses to survive on :p

    I know all of you ladies, (and gents) are well travelled and have great taste, so all help will be appreciated.. thanks in advance .xoxoox
