Shout out to the lazyweb…
Now that I’m in Southern New Jersey, the closest & best Amtrak station for me to take to Washington, DC is 30th Street Station in Philadelphia (according to Google Maps, about a 42 minute drive from here). So good that I have an abundance of trains to pick from. Bad that it’s not as close as the Princeton Junction train station was.
I just booked a trip for September 22nd. I’m a little nervous about how the parking is at the station. Is there a decent and safe lot for overnight parking? Easy to find spots? How much?
The station’s web site doesn’t give a lot of info.
This lot looks promising, but I can’t tell if I’ll spend an hour driving around surfing for a spot.
If I can’t get the lay of the land in advance, I’ll pony up for a car service for this first trip. I have a feeling that for anything longer than a 2 or 3 night trip, the car service will be a better deal anyway.
