Hi, I'm planning a 1 week trip for next May to Washignton DC and Boston. Likely 4 nigths in Washignton and 2 nights in Boston. Don't have too much flexibilty to extend the trip. We are from Latin America (Peru) and this will be our first trip to this 2 cities in U.S. (my wife and me).
We are very excited aboput this trip and our min purpose is knowing both cities (museums, attractions, etc). We like roadtrips, though the time for this trip is short, so I'm evaluating if it's worthy to make the Washington-Boston connection by plane, train or renting a car.
My main concerns are:
1- is it worthy a car ride from Washington DC to Boston if we only have 10 to 12 hours ? are there nice sceneries for a 1 day trip ? is it better to do it by train or plane on such a short term ?
2- if affirmative, which could be a good route with nice scenery/views ?
3- are there any 'must see' locations (scenery, points of interest, etc) in that route ?
I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you
