Suppose someone were to move from Boston to Washington DC in a fully loaded small car along with a small dog. All things being equal-ish, with neither time nor distance of the essence, but having no wish to stop in NYC, it feels like a good idea to avoid the area all together. Is this right thinking? Is this a situation where adding an extra 100 highway miles saves 4 hours in city traffic?
Option one is to drive south from Boston across Connecticut then to Scranton, Pa south to, Harrisburg, to DC.
Second is to suck it up and take the 90/95 route through the city.
There must be a preferred way? WDTLD? What do the locals do?
You're life savers thank you so very much.
