Possible US trip Nov 12, will this itinerary work?

Jump to last reply

Air NZ has cheap air fares out at the moment until May 11th 2012 so seriously thinking about visiting DD and SIL in NYC.

This is my initial thought, fly into San Francisco 29th Oct 2012, spend two or three days there, then fly to New Orleans. Spend three days or so then, then fly to Columbia Maryland for a few days to visit friends.

Then take the Amtrak or Bolt Bus to Philadelphia, stay a couple of nights there, then bus to NYC. Spend 12 -14 days with DD (have to stay in a hotel as their flat (apartment is too small for visitors) probably use a hotel in LIC where they live.

Then the last few days take the Bolt bus to Boston, and either fly back to NZ from there or go back to NYC and fly out of there. This would be on 25th Nov 2012. This is Thanksgiving weekend so could be expensive travel maybe?

Does this make sense. Would like to stay longer in NYC but it is peak season and accommodation will be expensive.

Any better ideas? Had thought of maybe doing Grand Canyon instead of New Orleans.
Also have been to Washington DC when we stayed with our friends in Maryland a few years ago.

Went to Disneyland, and LA on that trip also, with a quick coach trip to San Diego to Sea World.

Your thoughts welcome, this is just brainstorming at the moment!!!!
