I thought about doing Priceline bidding - I LOVE doing it for hotels - but Mr. Sabanist needs to be back at work Tuesday morning, and I want to stay for the Monday activities, so we'd need to fly out Monday night.
I'll check out amtrak now. Thanks again!
You could also try the BOLT bus from NYC. The only catch is that it will add four hours on to your trip, and you'll need to get from Queens to Manhattan to board it. Unless you know NYC really well, I would give yourself two hours between your flight to your Bolt bus departure time.
Also, @Sabanist, I know nothing about the South's geography, but have you tried other airports in Texas or in Florida? Like maybe Orlando or a Texas airport?
