What’s the best route to Boston from NJ?

Can I drive to Boston from New Jersey in one day? I want to surprise my mom in Boston for her birthday, but I can’t take more than a couple of days off of work.

Yes, you can make the trip to Boston from NJ in just one day if you take CT-15 N. Here are the major highways you’ll use for this trip:
  • Start on I-95 N.
  • Follow the signs for I-95 Lower Level N/U.S. 1 Lower Level N.
  • Exit onto NY-9A N.
  • Exit to Cross County Pkwy, then follow the signs to Hutchinson River Pkwy N.
  • Continue onto CT-15 N.
  • Exit on the left to I-84 E to enter Boston.
After you reach Boston, you can follow the road signs to reach the part of the city that you want to visit! It’s also a good idea to map out your route with a GPS appsince the streets of Boston can be a little confusing at times.
Before you leave, though, take an extra minute to use the Jerr​​y app to find a better car insurance rate. You want protection when you’re driving long distances, but finding the right coverage can be challenging. Jerry takes out the guesswork by collecting insurance quotes for you.
