This time next month I'll be in NYC. I want to do a trip (in this order) to Boston, Cape Cod, Acadia National Park, Northern Vermont and then come back down through Vermont. Original plan was to take train/bus to Boston, then rent a car when we are ready to leave Boston, then do all the other areas for 10 days, dropping the car back in NYC. Problem is that dropping the car off at JFK on our last day is more than double the price of dropping the car off back in Boston! I don't want to backtrack to Boston so looking for somewhere in Connecticut that has good public transportation links to JFK, Manhattan and Boston. That way we can rent & drop off the car in the same place. Will Hartford work? Any other ideas?
