Need help with our summer vacation itinerary. All that's set is our travel dates and our flights. We plan on using Amtrak & other public transportation to eliminate the need for rental cars.
So far I have:
Day 1-3: Buffalo/Niagara Falls (visiting friends-not negotiable)
Days 4 - 7: NYC
Day 8 - 9: Philly
Day 10 - 14: DC
Like I said, our itinerary is loose and not set in stone, so for first time visitors with 2 kids (15 & 10) does this plan seem reasonable? Is 1 1/2 days enough in Philly to see the highlights? What would be the best way to fit in a day trip to Gettysburg? Is a day trip enough time to see the Battlefield and the Museum? (if nothing else)
I will also post this on other forums as well, but hoping to get some opinions. Thanks in advance to all.
