Where to go? Help

DH said it was ok to do a mother's day getaway, but now I don't know where to go. Choice one is Mystic, CT, in which we would probably visit their children's museum or aquarium and lighthouse. The other option is Montauk, Long Island, in which we would just relax and hang out on the deck or on the beach. They also have a lighthouse (I love lighthouses, lol). I figure DD can play around in the sand or go in the heated pool if she wants.

What do you think?

Edit: I should add that Long Island is $238.88 and Connecticut is $155.40, excluding the museum's and aquarium entrance fees, which aren't a lot.

I vote for the beach...but if your dd likes to explore then the children's museum would be a good option...sorry...I am sure that did not help :D  How old is your dd?

Lol, it's ok. She doesn't get out much and is never around many ppl and children, that's why I thought of Mystic. She's 2.5. I'm just afraid the beach may be too chilly in May. Going there during the warmer months is so expensive!!

Well i'm an environmentalist ... and since Montauk is right next to Plum Island. I would go to Mystic CT. If you dont know about Plum Island... go ahead and look it up.

Yikes. I didn't know about that island. Hopefully the stuff they were doing hasn't really affected anyone in Montauk. And to think the Hamptons and Montauk is quite expensive...

Bumping with pricing information.

I know LI is more, but I guess it seemed really nice. Their heated pool won't be open though, blah.
