I know that some of this does not apply to the New York forum but please bear with me.
Our daughter is coming to the states in August to study at UConn for a year and we are coming to drop her off. We are fying in to New York on 13th Aug and then going to UConn on 17th Aug - we plan to make this trip my train to Hartford then hiring a car for a couple days whilst we are in the UConn area. Do we need to book the train tickets in advance? Is that possible for UK residents?
My wife and I then plan on visting Boston (4 night), Philadelphia (2 nights) and Washington (4 nights) and as all of these are big cities we plan on travelling to them via train - is that recommended (and possible) or should we hire a car? Would you recommend this Itinerary?
Our fixed dates are
Fly into New York on 13th August
Go to UConn on 17th August
19th August to 29th August - Boston, Philadelphia and Washington
Fly out of Washington on 29th August evening
Any help and advice on this trip/itinerary would be very welcome.
