Day trip to CT from NYC

Jump to last reply

Just in planning stages now - but we're expecting to stay in NYC in the fall or spring for about a week and want to take a day trip to Connecticut. DH hasn't been there, so we can go anywhere in the state. I've seen a lot of posts about parking in CT and taking the Metro North to Grand Central, but nothing about a reverse trip. I'm thinking we can have lunch somewhere and then head back to the city.

* Is Metro North our best bet, or should we try Megabus? I love the idea of leaving from GCS (have only been there once in all my times in the city) so personally I'd prefer the train. But lack of car might make it complicated.

* Where best to go in Connecticut?

* And then do we grab a taxi, or walk, or take a bus once we get to the train station? We will have two elementary-aged kids with us, and they're great travelers. However more than a mile of walking (even picturesque) isn't realistic.
