Hi all. My wife and I are from New Zealand and planning a trip to the USA in late August/early September. We plan on spending a few days in New York and then flying to somewhere in the midwest and basing ourselves perhaps in Lexington. Is it possible to do day trips to places like Indianapolis, Paduca, Bloomington, Cincinnati without spending too much time behind the wheel.
Another idea was to Amtrak from New York to Washington DC and then drive to Kentucky....how long would that take and is there much to see on the way.
