Hi, me and my boyfriend are thinking of a trip around the east coast of america
our plan is
new york 1-2weeks
washington dc - 1 week
tennesse - 3-4days
florida - 2- 3 weeks
does this seem like long enough times for everywhere as we\'ve never been to america before?
also i\'ve read you can get cheap transport from miami to the bahamas, is this true/a good idea?
any help would be much appreciated?!!!

and if you have any ideas how is best to travel to and from these places it would be of reall use- heard mixed reviews of greyhound/amtrak!

thanks!

We did most of the tourist things in New York in five days. But we were non-stop. So I think you'll have plenty of time in 1 week. We then took the Amtrak to Washington and it was a great experience plus it was cheap. We did all the tourist thing in Washington in five days, again it was non-stop walking. If you go to New York the one thing that I enjoyed the most was eating in Little Italy at the restaurant called Vincent's. I recomend the Chicken Fettucini Alfredo (sp?). Reply to this

Our vacation was for 10 days but we were on a budget and we didn't do much shopping in all we took about $2,000 dollars. But everything was paid before we left.

Here is some of the stuff we paid in advance: Statue of Liberty Tour, Ellis Island, Broadway Show, Hotel, The David Letterman Show was free, The Empire Building, The Today Show was Free, Central Park was free.

So the $2,000 dollars was for food, taxi fare, train fare and suveniors. We actually came home with money in our pockets. 😊 I'm guessing that if you are a shopoholic and you are going there for Prada, Tiffany and the Jimmy Choo Shoes, then I guess $2,000 dollars is not enough. Reply to this

It's hard to get from one city to the next without a car. Taxis are ridiculously expensive and the greyhounds are on the slum side. From Washington D.C. you could take a train down to Jacksonville, Fl and rent a car from there to visit most of Fl. Have a good trip!

For travel between NYC and DC check out the Chinatown bus service. It's cheaper than Amtrak or NJ Transit, not as sketchy as Greyhound, and if you happen to like old kungfu movies and enjoy Chinese food at the end of a trip, this is the way to go!

The busses leave and drop off in each city's Chinatown. I used it from Philly to NYC and also to Boston and DC. It's $20 one way from NY to DC.

Just another option...
