“Any other ideas for a relaxing and safe weekend trip?”

“Dear PoPville,

My wife has been working ridiculous hours lately, and probably will be doing so until mid-December. Normally, we would reward ourselves with a vacation somewhere warm, but we’re not comfortable flying in the pandemic. Where is a good place to go for a long weekend, within driving distance (maybe 8 hours max), that has COVID-safe winter activities besides being cold (my wife doesn’t ski) and sitting in a hotel room? I had been thinking about the Homestead Resort in Virginia for the outdoor hot springs, but I’ve heard it’s kind of run down for the price, so not sure about that one. Any other ideas for a relaxing and safe weekend trip?”
