NYC & Boston in Sept/Oct

Jump to last reply

I posted here before about this hoped-for vacation, but now it looks like Hubby MUST take some time off! So he wants me to check out Boston and NYC at the end of Sept, beginning of Oct. We aim to fly into one, Amtrak to the other, fly out from there, but not sure which first--or if it matters.

First off, IS this a good time to visit, particularly weatherwise?

How about prices? We're looking for (hopefully) no more than $200/night, but are very willing to go lower. We stayed at the Affinia Manhattan last year; it was fine on price and great on location. We got familiar enough with NYC to feel comfortable getting around the subway and to/from JFK. We hope to go a bit further than last time, but I don't think we'd ever get tired of the City.

Boston is another matter. We plan on taking the T, but don't know where to stay. Hubby wants the Freedom Trail and the regular tourist spots, but also checking out MIT, Harvard, Fenway, maybe even America's Test Kitchen. From reading forums here, there doesn't seem to be just ONE locale that would fit us, but I'll take suggestions. Same price range (<$200/night would be great). What I want is a place that's safe, quiet, and clean. Fancy is a bonus; we'll be out most of the day.

We like walking around, looking at things, buildings, etc. other than walking, we're not into a lot of activities. Can't have alcohol (meds), so don't need to know about wine and great bars. We're not clubbers, more the quiet place to talk with friends or complete strangers even.

Help is appreciated!

I pimp these forums out whenever someone asks for advice on a vacation.
