I have been reading this forum shortly, and it seems there is much directive and also direct response to the contents provided. Therefore, I have decided to give it a try :)
At first, we figured to take a roadtrip along the whole atlantic coast whole the way from Miami to NYC (2054 kilimometers) by renting a car directly in Miami. However, in the end (and due to time constraints) we have now decided to not do this as we have limited time and basically, no clue :)
So here is the situation:
I will be flying from Chicago (O'Heare) directly to New York (JFK) on Friday September the 2nd. My brother will by then also take a direct plane, however, he will be coming from Holland.
So, we will both be arriving in NYC on Friday September 2nd, in the evening (e.g. 8 pm). From that moment on we have 1 week to do all the fun stuff that 2 European guys would want to do in USA. We would want to be flying back on Friday the 8th from either airport with a direct flight to Holland (this is because the flight is ~9 hours + time delay = 7 hours. So if we would leave on Friday @ 16:00 we would only arrive at 8 PM saturday Morning @ Schiphol Amsterdam).
Either way, before this story becomes even longer; we are 2 Dutch guys of Mid 20's, who love to go out (clubs, festivals etc.), take opportunities ("hey you wanna go paraglide? YEAH, why not!" etc.) , do sports ("You wanna join for a game of football?" YEAH why not!), do crazy stuff ("That game of 'MAX' with the dices from Holland is crazy guys!").
In short, what we would like is to spend 6 days and 7 nights in USA, with the starting point in New York City (landing on JFK) (Arrival ~8pm Friday 2nd of September 2011 + Departure Friday 9th of September 2011 ~16:00) We would like to visit Statue of Liberty and see all important touristic scenery that can be seen. But also, go to the coolest clubs in NY and also do all the stuff that is cool that can be done within the limited timeframe given. We are willing to rent a car (if this is recommended) and the airport where we fly back to Holland does not need to be JFK again, it could
If you could advize on a 'perfect' itenary for two young guys trying to have a very good sunny time in New York, that would be very much appreciated!
