Thread: Miami to NYC

  1. Default Miami to NYC

    Weīre planning a trip from Brazil to NYC. We were going to take a flight straight to NYC, but we are wondering that it could be cool to take the flight to Miami, and then make a roadtrip from Miami to NYC. Iīve read its about 1300 miles trip, and think itīll take about 2 or 3 days to do it, right. Weīre thinking about going in January 2008, to face some cold and snow in NYC. Do you guys think itīs possible, or would it be too tiring? And, do anybody know waht kind of documents (driverīs license kind) itīs necessary for a foreigner to do a roadtrip like this? Iīll be really grateful for any suggestions and tips. Thanks.

    Default possible, but with challenges

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You certainly can drive from Miami to NYC, but anything less than 3 full days would be a full out speed run, where you wouldn't have much time to stop and enjoy things along the way.

    As long as you have a drivers license in your home country, you really shouldn't have any problems renting a car in the US. Just keep in mind, you'll probably face a drop off fee if you rent in Miami and then return the car in NYC.

    Making this a roadtrip would certainly let you see a lot more of the US than just NYC, but if you are looking for fast and cheap, it might not be the best option. It just depends upon what your priorities are.
