New Hampshire to Washingto DC
We booked our trip about 5 days before we left. it can be a hit or miss when doing so.
Tip - However I find when booking through Southwest Airlines booking in advance tends to
get the better price. By booking in advance can save you hundreds of dollars .
TIP - 1 person in our party pays for advanced seating. Roughly $
This enables us to have someone get on first and saves us seats together.
( The flight from N.H. is a fast trip and takes aprox 1 hour and 20 minutes. )
We rented a car from Enterprise for the 6 days. Depending where you want to go
I would suggest to rent a car. Some hotels will offer shuttles but,
they may not be convient for you and a car is easier.

snacks to keep in the car and hotel. If needed we buy a disposable cooler.
