Boston to Trenton - July 3

Jump to last reply

I need to drive from the North Shore (northeast of Boston) to Trenton, NJ, on July 3, arriving no later than 2:00 PM. Even though I live up here, I have no idea what to expect in the way of holiday traffic, as I don't usually make a road trip around Independence Day.

Any suggestions on what time will be best to depart? I'm not sure what to factor in for the combined effects of rush hours and holiday traffic on Boston, Hartford, and NYC area traffic that day. From what I understand, the trip normally takes 5–6 hours outside rush hours.

Also, is the Tappan Zee the best way to go? I'm guessing it will be better than the NYC bridges but am not sure.

Thanks!
