We will be in Manhattan (mid-town) 18-22 December and would like to visit some of my husband's relatives in Hackettstown, NJ one day. They are elderly and don't come in to the city any more so we are going to travel to them. Probably aiming to arrive by 11am and leaving around 3-4pm.
I have checked the trains and they seem to take a long time and perhaps do not run at the weekends which is when we had planned on going so need to look at alternatives.
We could hire a car as both experienced driving in the States although not in inclement weather should it happen to be snowy/icy.
I see there are lots of car services, is one any better than another for this kid of trip? I'd like to narrow it down so I can start asking for quotes.
Any other options?
