To get to Boston, Washington DC, or Philadelphia the cheapest and easiest way is by bus.  You can take Megabus or the Chinatown bus for about $30- $40 roundtrip.  Go to www.megabus.com or www.chinatown-bus.com. You can also take a guided tour to many cities with Kaplan Aspect!  Ask Robert, the Student Life Manager, or your Student Representatives for more information!
