Travel to LGA and Cornell
Sunday, July 15, 2012
Today early morning we left the Jacksonville Plaza Hotel and Suites and drove the Economy Parking Lot 2 at the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), parked our car on the long-term lot and took a parking shuttle to the Terminal A to catch our Delta flight to LGA.
Everything went well. We checked few bags for $25 each and left early in the morning with no delays. By the time we arrived in LGA we were about 20 minutes ahead of the schedule and landed safely. We took the Dollar Rental shuttle to a location in East Elmhurst, NY and rented a 2013 Ford Escape Hybrid SUV for our trip to Cornell.
We had some coffee and donuts. We had already rented a GPS unit from GPSRentals.biz which was much cheaper than ($5/day) one would get from the car rental company. We plugged in our address of Cornell University, Cornell, NY and drove for several hours. On the way stopped at nice scenic byway just before reaching New York state (in Pennsylvania) and arrived in Cornell (amidst rain). We went around Cornell University taking some pictures (it stopped raining by then) and looking around the campus.
Finally we drove to motel in Cortland, NY and stayed that night.
