    Yes six flags great adventure is very well known. it’s about 2 hours from NYC. You could probably get a bus from Port Authority which is located in Times Square. You could look up their schedules by doing a google search for Port Authority buses or greyhound buses.

    Suzanne,
    Boston’s 4 hours from New York. You can get there via bus from the Port Authority in Times Suare or by Amtrak train in Penn Station.
    It’s very quaint and has many universities in a close radius of each other.
    Nashville is in Tennessee and is the home of country music. You’ve got longes with people playing music all day, the Country Music Hall of Fame, The Grand Oprey, Ryman Auditorium, Opry Mills Mall and Opreyland which is an amazing hotel which has a manmade canal with boat rides on it.

    For NYC to Boston I would also look into flying, a couple airlines have shuttle service from NY to Boston that’s cheap, easier and faster (even with security).

    Amtrak is close to $100 each way for acela service, which is 3 hours and 40 minutes. Regional service is about $60 to $80 each way and is 4 hours and about 10 minutes depending on the stops. Amtrak also isn’t known for it’s on-time performance record.

    You can get flights for like $160 to $!70 round trip and each flight is just over an hour and there are a lot more flight time choices then train time choices. If you do this, I would suggest LaGuardia airport over JFK as it’s a little easier to get to from the city (I recently took a bus shuttle thing for $12 one way and it took about 20-25 minutes to get to the airport from Grand Central).

    I plan to travel to the USA in Mar/Apr in 2008 doing the southern adventure tour. I am waiting on dates for the rodeo in Dallas before I book my tour. I shall be going alone. Yeh bit worried but better now than never. If anyone has done the tour and been to the rodeo, could they let me know what time of year that they went. Ta

    Hiya

    I did the Grand Southern. The Southern Adventurer and the Grand Southern are the smame except that the Southern Adventurer ends in New Orleans; while the Grand Southern ends in New York.

    My point…. Did the rodeo in June/ July. It was stunning. You are also given the option of either having the barbeque or not. I chose the barbeque… it really added to the ambience.

    We did the rodeo on the first night we were in Dallas… but it all depends on the tour and weather conditions and other stuff like that.

    Our tour guide gave us another optional extra… we went to Texas Stadium. I’m not a football fan… but it was really something to see.

    Enjoy
