Boston-New York city-WashingtonDC

Jump to last reply

Just starting to plan our October 2 week trip to see these 3 cities. We are a husband/ wife in early 60's . We are flying from LA and not sure where is cheapest/ more convenient to fly into. Open jaw flights are usually much more or we could return to where we flew into. Have been reading on this site that you should have 5 days in New York and 5 in DC..how many would be good in boston? We are planning on staying near the lagardia airport in NYC and a hotel in Boston on 4th ave street/Waltham.

My other question is how to get from one to another city economically. Also want to avoid rental cars since you don't need them in any of these cities. Saw that amtrak was about $109 from Boston to New York??? And $180 from New York to DC. Is this the normal cost or did I do something wrong on the web site? Looked into the Bolt bus and that is $13 from Boston to NYC and $14 from NYC to DC. What's the catch? Any help would be appreciated.
