I am thinking of a trip to New York and Boston for the last 2 weeks of August 2014 for 2 adults and 2 sons (17 and 15). OH and I have been to Boston before (19 years ago) but not to NY. My thoughts so far are to have 5 days in NY and 9 in Boston (not sure which way round), taking the Amtrak between the 2 as we get a discount and like train travel.
Looking at flights and hotels the prices are quite scary! We would definitely prefer to have separate rooms but this seems a lot more expensive than all in one room but the boys would definitely not want to share a bed for 2 weeks.
Does anyone have any suggestions please for hotels/apartments which might be suitable and any tips for flights? Also, any advantages to going to 1 city first or does it not matter? I am posting this in both the NY and Boston forums, hope that's OK?
Thanks for any help.
