Hi all! We (family of 4, 2 teens) want to go to NYC the 2nd week in August for 6 or 7 nights. I am trying to decide if we should drive or fly. Seems with flights, air transport it will be just over 1000.00 and driving with 2 nights hotel during travel to and from, gas , parking etc. we're looking at about 800.00, so similar.
What route and overnight stops would you recommend on way there and back?
Also, we would give ourselves more time if driving, so wouldn't cut into NYC time that much.
