      Checked bags on AMTRAK with no checked bags sign

      Hi all,

      I'm going to go to Paoli, PA from New York, NY with AMTRAK. The sign on the schedule says the train has no checked bags. But I have to bring my big bag because I will continue the trip (also with AMTRAK) to Washington DC then head home to Indonesia. Is it possible to just bring the luggage with me even if it says no checked bag?

Long-term parking is free, but in 2008 people said not to park a car there over a weekend. We'll be gone 2 weeks! What alternatives do we have? Could we park long term at the airport and take a cab over?? Help!

      Visiting Rochester, Letchworth Park and Erie Canal

      by iam1wthee Online Now Aug 21, 2004 at 1:28 AM

      Next month I plan on going to Rochester from NYC. While there I plan to see Letchworth Park and Erie Canal. Does anyone know of a hotel in Rochester that has a tour desk to take one to these other places? If not is there a tour agency in Rochester that takes you to the other places mentioned? You see if there is then I would just take the plane up there, however, if there isn't then I would try to drive up there. The drive is like 5-7hours I understand and I have never driven for this long. Is there any rest stop or interesting town along the way that anyone can recommend so that I can rest up for the other half of the drive? How is the weather there in early to midst September? Would the waters be too cold to do white water rafting in Letchworth park? Would it be to windy for ballooning? Is there a cruise that goes into Letchworth Park? How is traffic up there, is it as bad as NY? Can one find parking easy? Would the laser light shows still continue past Labor Day? Are there cruises in Erie after Labor day? I know this is a lot but your response is greatly appreciated.
