I'm 22 and im going back to my summer camp in PA this summer to teach water skiing.
Around about the 25th August some of my buddies from New Zealand are coming over to join me in NYC to check out the sights and probably do a road trip for a month or so down and around the east coast.
Great forums here so I thought i'd stop by for some advice.
At this stage we are probably looking at taking in NYC, Boston, Niagra, Toronto, Phillie in the north and then
at this stage (open to suggestions) taking the coast road down the east eventually arriving in Florida.
Is this realistic to see in 1 month ?
1) buy or rent a car ? Some people suggest that buying a car and ensuring it could be a better option than renting? is it easy to organise one way rentals?
2) What American sports season will we be in ? Will we be able to catch some baseball and possibly a football game?
3) Places like Washington, charlotte and new orleans are also places I want to visit at some stage, would those be too far inland to include in a 1 month trip ?
4) as far as accomodation goes, there will be 3 guys traveling the journey, would most reasonable sized towns/cities have backpacker style accomodation?
and I guess the last question will be the weather, considering we are traveling south over the period of september we shouldnt run into any serious weather problems should we ?
It will remain fairly warm and nice?
As I say im very open to ideas and suggestions on what to skip and what to take in.
We are MASSIVE NBA fans, we love our sport (possibly go to the baseball museum etc for that reason) We love live music, umm, basically just young active guys from a small island in the south pacific ocean wanting to see the world.
Advise and critisms of current trip plans are welcomed.
