I am planning a 4 days trip to visit Washington DC in late October. I will be arriving in DC early Friday morning. I was thinking about driving to Manhattan Saturday afternoon to try and dodge the work day traffic as I hear it is bad.
Yahoo says the trip should take 4 hours, so I wanted to confirm:
Is there still heavy traffic on Saturday and Sunday in the DC/NYC area?
Are there multiple routes to take?
How long does it normally take to drive from DC to NYC on a Saturday?
Is the weather still ok in late October?
Any help is much appreciated! Thank you.
