I'm visiting NYC during the first week of December. Two adults. I'm looking for flying alternatives because I'm sick of flying.
I'm considering driving from Memphis, TN to DC, and taking the train into NYC. The parking at the train station would be cheaper than parking in NYC, and driving inside NYC is intimidating!
However, it may be less complicated to just drive into NYC anyhow.
Are there other options I'm overlooking here? A better route than going through DC and taking the train?
If I decide that a one-way car rental is a better option (to avoid parking fees), which rental place would you recommend? Is it more expensive to rent one-way? I'd rent one way each way, avoiding having to pay for parking at the train station or the hotel.
I suppose I could take my car, but it's a 2003 Honda Civic. I get nervous driving an older car that far. It's got 84K miles.
