So, let's say I want to go to New York City to see a Broadway show and head back home immediately after. Say I live relatively equidistant from both Baltimore, MD and Washington DC, and BWI isn't too far either (for example, in Columbia, MD or Elkridge, MD). If I have access to a car, and am perfectly willing to walk some distance, take metro/train, or a bus (but no planes, you know how crazy those prices can be). What would the most feasible option for making the trip to and fro without breaking the bank?

    I'm not sure how anyone can answer this without knowing your actual starting point (at least down to the level of a particular city or town). We have no idea how close you are to a metro, train, or bus stop. – Zach Lipton Aug 16 '17 at 20:03
  • Both Elkridge and Columbia are thoroughly covered by the Howard County bus system. If it helps I do indeed live within walking range of a bus stop. – Bakna Aug 16 '17 at 20:49

    Amtrak, absolutely, because the train stops at Penn Station, just 9 little-blocks from where all the Broadway theaters are, certainly less than a mile. When I do a daytrip, I usually walk it. If you're near BWI, you're near BWI Amtrak. – Harper - Reinstate Monica Aug 16 '17 at 22:09

    Evening show or matinee? You will have a lot fewer options at 11pm or later after the evening shows let out. Also, weekday or weekend? – Nate Eldredge Aug 16 '17 at 22:27
