My husband & I are flying to New York from Australia early Oct and plan to stay in NY approx 4-5 days. Then thinking of catching the train to Boston to stay approx 3 days before hiring a car to travel around New England. We want to stay around 2 nights per town to get a good feel of the area and not have to do too much driving each day.
Can anyone recommend a route to take that leaves and returns from Boston?. We'll have around 12-14 days. Also concerned about Columbus long weekend ie booking accommodation?
Should we be booking all the accommodation before we leave Australia or just hope to find it along the route each time?
Best Western type accommodation will be fine - just want somewhere clean and safe as we'll be out most of the day.
Any advice would be VERY much appreciated as soon as possible. Thank you.
