I'm posting this thread on both New England and New York forums. Sorry for the duplication – is there a way to share a thread between two or more forums?
I need your help in planning a trip that is different from the trips we are used to do. Usually, we rent a car and book accommodation plus restaurants well ahead and travel easily and peacefully to the locations we selected to visit.
We've just returned from a wonderful foliage trip to the Adirondack and New England. It was a piece of cake planning and executing this plan.
Now we would like to enjoy some of these great views in the winter, hoping to see them covered with snow. However, we are not skiing anymore and we are not experienced with snow driving at all. We do capable of and like to hike through short (2-4 hours) easy to moderate trails.
We are planning about 12-13 nights, January/February 2022 time frame – flexible with dates except for the last week of Jan when we have to be home. Flying to/from NYC.
From what I've read so far it looks like we should plan on using trains to move from one point to another while enjoying the views during these rides. We should choose locations where we can find public transportation or shuttle from the train station to our hotel/resort.
We would spend a few days in NYC. We've heard that Boston is very nice in the snow so we may consider it and…we are hoping to get more suggestions from this forum.
