Road Trip to Boston in 24 hrs

Leave a comment Standard

So what is there to do in Boston in a 24hr Span. this is the challenge we took on.

We decide to make a round trip from NYC to Boston, Massachusetts. We took the Megabus transportation which is conveniently located in the heart of both cities and offer the best connections to local rain system. The trip it self was not bad. The buses run on time and provide complementary Wi-Fi, took about 4hrs from the time we left around 5:30AM and arrive at 9:00AM.  On this trip wet tried to capture the most information in the shortest amount of time. We visited Parks, local favor food and sightseeing attractions.  If you ever try to make a short trip here are my recommendations:

I. Transportation:

Megabus would be the prefer method to travel into the city. it offers Wi-Fi, reclining seats and fares starts a promotional rate of $1 dollar. Once you are in Boston I would recommend using the local transportation app called Transit Tracker. This mobile  application is the most complete to get routes with in the city and surrounding both using the bus and the trains. not only will show you how to get there, but it will also make sure you get there on time.

II. Restaurants:

We took a quick bite at the local flavor for this we decide to stop a James hook and co.  James Hook is a lovely place in Boston to get a well-filled lobster roll, a bisque or a clam chowder. They keep things simple, its like a basic food trailer with pinic tables  close to the water. they pride themselves with on a perfectly delicious food that keeps you coming back again and again.

III. Sightseeing:

The Public Garden ; you know this was the first American garden founded by the settlers. it has perfectly crafted flower beds, it has various monuments along the way and a quiet lagoon. it was a very peaceful experience to explore

The little Italy of Boston:    one of the oldest neighborhood in America and a history American Italian neighborhood the reason to call it little italy because of the many great selection of  Italian cuisines and restaurant. very lay back atmosphere and a local hangout for the locals

The Harvard University : Compose of 660 buildings the harvard univesity is  one of the most prestigious center of higher education since 1636. Just exploring the whole university can be itself a whole day trip . its also very nice to know that 8 American presidents have attended this university.

 

Well there you have it folks, hope you enjoy my small report and my experience on this city. please view and share my YouTube video if you like

Best Campground with amenities in Central Pennsylvania

The Yogi Bear Yellowstone Park CampResorts in Quarryville, PA is located in the heart of the Dutch country side in Lancaster Pennsylvania. This Park is a perfect spot for family campground adventures. It offers Tent sites, cabins , Rv sides surrounded plenty of entertainment activities including a water park that will keep you splashing all day.

One of the highlights of our trip to the Yogi Bear Campground was exceptional level of cleanest throughout the Park. The staff is very active and courteous. When we first arrive we immediately felt the friendly atmosphere that everyone talks about.

Amount all the amenities that this Park offers , I can say that the jumping pillow and the pedal racing cars are the Top attractions. These two amenities can keep the the kids busy all day. But nonetheless the other activities like the playground, mini golf, laser tag, Campground trails, the Lake, the movie site, and the wonderful water park.

Aside from the activities and the staff. The onsite store offers all the utensils and stocks to make your trip wonderful. As a first time camper, we were worried of not having or been prepare with everything needed. Walking to the store and the gift shop we found all the missing pieces that we forget to collect while packing. Even if you are coming from a long way from your location, be certain that this Campground has every thing you can think of, if you do needing anything else there is a Walmart with in a fair distance to drive.

One of the advantages of staying in this Campground was the close proximity to other activities to do what within the Lancaster surroundings. You can enjoy going shopping to the Tanger outlets, Dutch Wonderland, the Strasburg train museum and the wonderland of the Amish farms.. nothing is more satisfying than to enjoy your day activities and coming back to Thea clean cabin and enjoying a firewood burning and some marshmallows with the family.

Overall Yogi Bear Campground in Pennsylvania offers a very good experience. A very clean and family friendly with plenty of amenities and outstanding services..

New York City is the city of dreams , where anything and everything happens.

A melting pot of cultures that no one would love not to miss. As we drive down the turnpike our mission was critical.

The number one thing we had in mind was to give my sister in law the most wonderful lasting impression.

Long distance road trip.. this is what you should know.

When it comes to travel, most people prefer to fly, just because it’s the most effective, fastest way to get to a destination, but what about driving?
Well, on a long distance trip most drivers can only drive up to two hours before experiencing tiredness. I will give you my life hacks and what has work for me in order to extend my time and distance when it comes to a long distance trip.
This is what you should know.
1. Leave early: not only will save you time but headaches of traffic
2. Drive comfortable: put on your pajamas and drive, nothing is more comfy that to have your blood freely flowing thru your body veins..
3. Stay hydrate: drink plenty of water in small sip intervals to keep your body well hydrate and prevent fewer bathrooms stops along the roads.
4. Get a portable massage and ice bottles::
When the muscles as for help, relief the tensions by applying massages and ice cold water to the area..

Have fun driving long distance trips and have a safe travel along the way
