Getting out of Hoboken?
Sure is nice sometimes, right?
Even though some of you may be hunkered down from all this snow we’re getting – it’s never a bad time to talk about “leaving town.” And by that, I don’t mean moving – but rather taking a road trip away from the headaches – or even heading down to the shore once the weather gets warmer.
But traveling itself presents some headache-inducing problems – mainly traffic and congestion.
How do you roll out of the Mile Square?
No matter whether I’m just going shopping – or taking a very rare day or two off – I have some fairly hard-core requirements (and I suggest it for anyone!) – Travel during off-peak hours and days!
Just getting out of the tri-state area via car during rush hour, or any holiday weekend is a total nightmare. Save yourself the frustration, and either find times where everyone else is either working – or asleep. You’ll get where you’re going so much faster and easier!
Even for those that say “well, I don’t have the luxury of traveling when I want” – I say rubbish. You can find a way. Either cut your trip short by half a day – or leave a half-day earlier.
Same goes for returning to Hoboken! Leaving town is just half the battle. Pay careful attention to when you expect to return back to town – because unless you have a parking spot, finding street parking after 5pm on a weekday can become very dicey. I made this mistake last year when I took a one-night trip to south Jersey on a Friday night, and spent the same amount of time driving around Hoboken on a Saturday night trying to find a spot – that I did actually getting here!
In Hoboken – timing is everything when it comes to reducing stress on your trips!
