We are thinking of taking Amtrak from Penn Station to Kingston, then on to Newport for first night, then to Martha's vineyard for 2 nts, then fly back to JFK. I'd be grateful for advice on whether this will be easy or a big hassle as to how we'd get from one place to the other.
Main questions are:
1. best way to get from Amtrak Kingston train station to Newport? (would be a sunday in June)?
2. do we need a car in Newport? Are hire cars available in Kingston or Newport? We just want to see all the mansions. Is two half days enough time?
3. best way to get from Newport to Martha's VY?
4. Has anyone used Delta to fly Marth's VY to JFK? Is it reliable?
