Off to the Big Apple for the weekend. It's going to be as fun as a barrel of monkeys there.
With all the express buses from DC to NYC why not go? Several bus lines offer unbelievably low prices including:
Greyhound had the best prices this round, especially if you buy online at least 1-2 weeks in advance. These cheap and easy buses remind me more traveling in Europe than in the States. And traveling in Europe is MUCH easier than here. I just wish we had the equivalent Ryan Air. Sure, you fear whether the pilot actually knows how to fly, and whether you'll make it to your destination; but there's not a whole of complaining for $20 a plane ticket.
