Offbeat Sights and Destinations?  (2 Answers)

Hi everyone. I will be traveling through New York in August and September. I like things weird and offbeat and was hoping someone could point me to some sights and destinations that would fit that description. Right now, my plan:

August 16-17 In Niagara Falls

August 27 Cape Vincent, Alexandria Bay, and the Thousand Islands

September 2 In Burlington, VT, near Plattsburgh, on Lake Champlain

September 6-8 New York City and surrounding boroughs

Thank you in advance.

JFK to Newark Airport one way  (2 Answers)

Hi Travellers - could someone recommend a reputable private hire with all in costs including tolls and tips - travelling from JFK airport to Newark?
Golden Class Limo is winning at the moment - not based on cost - they are quoting $140 including tip and tolls.
Our US friends think that the shuttle is good enough and sedans are too pricey but it is with trepidation that the shuttle will be taken. ETS shuttle is getting a 1/5 and State shuttle is not faring much better. Tripadvisor do not promote the shuttles either :(
Reviews are very poor and would hate such a long flight to be compounded by a dreadful trip to Newark. Many thanks in advance.

I'm going to have cancer treatments abroad, thanks to Placidway Medical Tourism. I'm from Mexico, but having the best treatment and the best oncologists is a priority for me. That's to say, I have my trip scheduled on 13th March and I'm going to spend 8 days in NY. I'll have 3 full days for visits and surroundings. So what do you suggest?

Shipping to my hotel  (9 Answers)

I´ve sent a mail to the hotel and asked if it´s okay. They said it´s okay but they can only store the goods for two days.

I will arrive the 22th of December and leave the 27th of December.
Normally, what´s the estimated delivry time in US and how is it around Xmas? When would you recommend me to order, or is it to risky?

Hope anyone can help me and give me some advice :-)

JFK layover  (1 Answer)

We'll be on a 10 hour layover at JFK on our way to Vancouver from Dubai unfortunately with 2 different airlines. Planning to get out and tour a couple of places in Manhattan with my wife and 2 year old daughter. My only problem is my baggage. Does JFK have any baggage storage services which I can use while we go around Manhattan. I dont want to carry all those baggage around the city nor does my connecting flight have any early check in facilities. We'll be arriving at terminal 4 and departing on terminal 7.

short vacation at NYC  (6 Answers)

hi everyone. ill be stopping at NYC for a couple of days, up to now i havent book any hotel, as most of what i see are very expensive. I am flying in via JFK International Airport, so Im rather confused whether i should stay somewhere just near the airport to save some from the taxi, or stay near downtown so I would be near the tourist attractions, etc... Any suggestion or advice where to stay at NYC? Im actually not a picky one, I could stay anywhere for as long as its clean and safe. Given that I will be out most of the day, and will only need a place to sleep and leave my things. Please your suggestion on budget motels/hostels... Appreciate your helpful response as my trip would be two weeks from now. Thanks
