Need some travel options. My daughter is graduating from college in June and the family (6 people, including her) will be flying to Washington, DC for the ceremonies. We will stay a few days there, then want to head over to NY City for a few days and make this a family vacation.
I’m guessing we really don’t want to rent a car round trip from DC to NY and back, as it would be fairly useless in the city. We could:
[li]Fly into DC and home from NY; rent a car for one day, one way to get between cities.[/li][li]Take Amtrack from DC to NY (is that even possible?)[/li][li]Take Megabus or equivalent between cities (not a top choice)[/li][li]Some other, better solution that I haven’t listed[/li][/ul]
What say you? How should we handle the logistics?
Bonus - where should we stay in each city? Prefer mid range hotels, B&B’s, and the like but could be open to other accomodations.
