East Coast Road Trip!! Caveats: Medium amounts of luggage, and no car.
posted by mokudekiru to travel & transportation (9 answers total)
My friend and I are moving out to the east coast for the summer. Destinations: Philly and Pittsburgh, with start dates for work ~1 week apart. We would like to see some fun places on the east coast beforehand (places like Boston, NYC, Philly, possibly DC). We're flexible about where we go, but would like to spend up to about a week exploring before going to our respective internships.
Neither of us have a car. Renting is an option, but we're both under 25 so it gets pricey. Should we fly out and then rent a car? Which city should we fly to? Is there reasonable public transportation to certain cities? And if so, would it be navigable with a summer's worth of luggage (one big bag + miscellaneous luggage each)? Which places are more manageable and fun given our restrictions?
MeFites, you are more experienced in traveling the east coast. Specific tips, advice, and wisdom please!
