      JFK to Boston by bus - first time and with family

      United States of America 40 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.

      I'm planning a trip to VA beach in about 3 weeks, and having trouble finding a place to rent located near Sandbridge. I hear its away from the hustle and bustle of the VA beach resort area, and that the two main realitors only rent to family groups only. Does anyone know if that's true or has rented places where you weren't a family group? If so, how did that go? There's going to be a group of us age from 18-25, with me being the oldest. Would they not rent to me because we're students and not a family group? We're planning on just renting a place there as a place we can come back to after a long day of site seeing. No wild parties, etc. I'm having trouble finding a place to put us all in (15 people or so), does anyone have suggestions for Sandbridge locations or locations near VA beach that would accommadate 15 people at a fairly low budget? lol, we're students afterall. :)
