In December, my Boyfriend and I will be visiting Philadelphia for the first time (very excited) and then travelling on to New York. We have been trying to book transport between the two cities - one way - but seem to keep coming up against luggage restrictions. We will have two suitcases between us (luggage allowance on plane is 25Kg so each suitcase will be somewhere around this weight) but when looking on Amtrak, although the 2 stations have baggage check facilities, there are no Philly - NYC journeys that will allow luggage. We then looked at The Greyhound buses but seem to come up against the same problem - accept this time luggage is allowed but only up to 62 in (total measurement). Am I reading all of this incorrectly or is it really difficult to travel by land from Philly to NYC?
If anyone has any experience of this your help and advice would be greatly appreciated!
