I'm re-posting my questions here as I was told I had wrongly posted it earlier in the New York Forum:-
It will be our (hubby & I) first trip to New York & its to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Our general idea is to spend a couple of days in NYC, a couple in Washington DC and about 3 days in Boston. We have 12 days in total.
My husband's interest are mainly military, history and books and I like to visit interesting districts/places and actually smaller towns. Because of my desire to visit smaller towns, we are thinking of renting a car for either NYC to Washington DC or NYC to Boston and taking the train for trip that we did't choose to drive.
Is the above do-able and which would afford a better driving experience in terms of ease of drive as well as interesting stops/towns in between. The other option is merely to do day trips from NYC or Washington but the drawback is the horrendous overnight parking fees charged by most hotels.
Any advice would be appreciated.
