Spending an arm to fly out from Hawaii to Boston so DH can run the Boston Marathon again. Hotel rooms have tripled in price from 2 years ago. Boston One my a$$. They are taking full advantage of us.

So we might as well spend the other arm and do the GAP/C&O trail since we will be on the east coast. The marathon is April 21st. We will probably take the train to Pittsburgh a few days later and start our ride towards DC on the 23rd or 24th.

What was your experience?

Do you have any must see/must stay suggestions?

Any suggestions for towns/locations where we should spend more than 1 night?

We may limit our daily mileage to less than 20 IF my husbands mother joins us. That being said, any suggestions for that type of schedule?
