A group of friends and I are planning a road trip from Toronto to New York City for new years. There will be 6 of us and we are planning to leave on Tuesday December 29th and come back on the Sunday.
Initially we wanted to rent a car and take a road trip there for the whole experience of taking a road trip, but after talking to people they told us the drive is pretty bad and it might be a better idea to take other means of transportation. Can someone give us advice on transportation? What are the pros and cons of each? (rent a car, train, bus. etc)
Also, we wanted to mainly stay in the city and hopefully experience time square for new years eve. Are there any hotels you guys can recommend? Are there any good spots to stand for times square that isn't too crazy? How long would we have to wait to get a spot?
Some quick background information:
- We are all 21-24 years old
- We are all able to drive
- Money isn't a HUGE issue, but would rather go for the best value.
Anything else we should look into before trying to plan this trip? Any tips? Sorry for all the questions guys but we're just excited and wanted to be well prepared for our first trip together and thought this forum would be a great place to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!
