I'm leaving for a road trip to the East Coast this weekend and need some help on the best way to get from Boston to Philly. I'm thinking of taking 90 to I-84 through Connecticut to 684 South, Then taking I-287 around the NYC Metro, to U.S. 206 down into Trenton and into Philly.

Has anyone taken this route, or is there a better way to get between the two cities while avoiding NYC traffic?
