Hi folks, I know Im early but just returned from honeymoon and need to now plan the next holiday to give me something to look forward to. I am planning on visiting the East coast! I have friends living in Boston, NJ and NY and hope to go spend a few days with each of them and do a bit of sightseeing. I have been to Philly, NJ, NY and DC before but new hubbie as never visited the states. We will have about 17/18 days and I would really appropriate suggestions on what order you think we should visit cities. We plan to get between cities by train.
Day 1-3: I had originally thought, fly into Boston - stay with friends for 3 nights and see around Boston (have never been so do not really know what the sights here are)
Day 4-5 Train to philly, see the sights rocky, liberty bell etc and get a cheese steak :-)
Day 6-9- train to NJ/NY - my friends in NJ live 30 min from NY - stay 3/4 nights here - this will be more just a visit and catch up - maybe go to atlantic city and jersey shore but they will drive us!
Day 9-12 stay with our friend in NY - see the sights
Day 13-15 train to Washington and spend a few days seeing the sights (i know I could spend days and days here but budget wont allow it so it will just be the main sights to see)
Fly home from Washington
So that leaves a few days spare - any suggestions what to do with them - am I doing states in correct order? thanks for advice :-)
