Trip to New York City

I am researching information on a bus trip to NYC leaving the Wilmington area in mid December. This is a preliminary meetup just to see how many people would be interested in going. RSVP here if you definitely would like to go and then I will post a meetup with more information and details. This trip is the weekend of the 14th and costs about $100 per person and you would have all day Saturday to walk the streets of New York City. Again I am posting this preliminary meetup just to get an idea of how many people would commit and to get peoples comments.

    Be aware it will take any bus 12 hours to get you all there and then another 12 hours to get you all back. So sleep on the bus and hope the bathroom doesn't break on the way.

      I've taken a train to NYC. I'd do it again. It's best to leave from Rocky Mount, NC. It's the last stop before Virginia.

    You guys make sure you take some good pictures! I shall see New York City through your eyes :). I'll go someday, but not by bus. LOL. Got nothing against buses but when I read 12 hrs, I knew sitting in a seat for that long would raise my pain level to epic proportions! I'd be crawling off that bus looking for the first crack addict I could find for some relief :))))

    Seats are going fast! If you plan on going you need to decide THIS WEEKEND and get me atleast a $25 deposit if not the entire $100. I will not ask again. You just won't get a seat if you do not get me a deposit by Wednesday.

    The best way to see NY would be on a Circle Line tour around Manhattan on a sightseeing boat. It takes approx. 3 hours and at the end of the trip you will know more about Manhattan than most New Yorkers do!! Cost is around $35 give or take a few.

    • Lemuel
