Hi, My husband and I have both recently retired and are planning another road trip in the USA, we have already driven round Florida, Oregon, New England, California and the Southern States but would like to visit Cape Cod - we are concerned that this area would be really expensive in July/August but unsure if a fall visit is still viable - we are both retired so we need to be financially aware!
We are thinking that we would fly into JFK from the UK, spend 3 nights in Manhattan, catch a train to New Haven where we would pick up the hire car - husband doesn't fancy driving in NYC! We would spend about 10 nights exploring Connecticut, Rhode Island and the Cape Cod area before returning the car, getting back to NYC and flying back to the UK. Does this seem like a good plan in mid September? Would we struggle to find hotel rooms around the $100 $120 per night mark? Would there still be restaurants open or would they have closed for the winter? What places of interest should we make sure we visit? Sorry if this is a long post but we do like to make sure we get the most out of our vacations! Thanks in advance.
