      JFK to Boston by bus - first time and with family

      United States of America 44 minutes ago

      Hi VTers

      We would arrive at JFK in the morning (8 am, Terminal 4) and plan to travel to Boston the same day by bus. We are 2 adults and 2 small kids with luggage. We have been to some countries together but this will be our first time to the US ā€“ 2+ weeks vacations starting from the 2nd week of December.

      From some Internet search, it seems that first we have to make it to Manhattan from JFK to catch the bus to New England ā€“ although Iā€™d have preferred bypassing NYC which does not seem possible (?).

      Please suggest how to do that as a first timer. Which ticket we should buy, how, and where? We would like to use public transport but may use the taxi if that is necessary. Just to mention, we plan to come back to NYC later.

      For NYC-Boston, we intend to take the late afternoon (3-4 pm) bus connection so that we are not rushed. In the best case scenario it looks like that we could reach NYC around afternoon, and will have a few hours to roam/relax around. Would that be a good strategy? Can we leave our luggage at the bus station safely for a few hours (e.g. Megabus)?

      We contemplated about staying one night in NYC before moving ahead to Boston but decided otherwise due to reasons.

      Hi New Yorkers. I would be grateful for your help.
      I will be arriving in New York on 21st December in the afternoon and leaving on the evening of the 28th.
      I will require a single trip from Jamaica into Manhattan on the E train to get to my hotel and then I want an 7 day card that I will use from the 22nd until my departure on the 28th.
      My question is, can I just take my single trip card and get it loaded at a booth for 7 days on the 22nd or is the 7 day card a different type? Many thanks. Roy.

      Tahoe City Nov 24, 2015 at 8:35 AM


      I'm considering buying a vacation home in Tahoe City having visited several times over the past few years.

      My concern is the price of property there is high and I'm worried if I wanted to sell in 5-10 years time would I at least get my money back.

      If you live there yourself or have any information on this it would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi. My wife and I fly out to New York on the 27th December and back to the UK on the 2nd January. We have our itinerary pretty well sorted but are struggling with what to do on NYE. We are staying on East 50th Street. My wife isn't a fan of fireworks so probably wouldn't enjoy Central Park and we do not want to spend a whole day standing in Times Square. We are young at heart mid 50's non-clubbing types and would like to go somewhere for a nice meal with possibly live music.Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you.

      Re: Estes Park trip first week of February

      by santanesia Online Now Jan 25, 2009 at 1:35 PM

      We leave in eight days to spend the first week of February ('09) at the World Mark timeshare in Estes Park. We know other parts of Colorado pretty well but not the northeast really at all. Can anyone tell us if Boulder and Laramie are good day trips? Also, how is the downhill skiing up that way? We'd probably only ski one or two days at most and might opt to skip it altogether if it's not good. Does anybody know if that Wed. snowshoe trip out of Estes Park is a good adventure? And is there any worthwhile hiking this time of year? I know, lots of questions but any answers would be a great help.

      What is the weather like in June?

      by bevjerry Online Now Jun 29, 2008 at 11:19 AM

      Can anyone tell me what the typical weather is in mid to late June in Estes Park? We're thinking of going there for our 50th anniversary and staying at the Stanley Hotel. We are not fans of 90 degree weather so if it's in that range we'll think about another location. We were considering Yosemite until we looked at this past week's temperatures.

      Our family will go to Estes Park for the first time in mid-July. We'll stay at the YMCA-of-the-rockies there, and our two kids are excited to try horseback riding. YMCA contracts with a company, or I noticed there are several other horseback riding places in and around Estes Park. Has anyone used any of them, and were they good? Which one?
