    Default New York - ?? roadtrip

    Hi

    I am flying from Scotland to visit my sister in New York in July and we want to plan a roadtrip for week commencing 2nd July. Unfortunatley we have no idea about roads, highways etc but will have a native New Yorker and a willing boyfriend to chauffeur us. Our tentative plan is to spend 5 days, max 6 on the road, leaving from New York with the ultimate aim of visiting friends in Toronto. We were thinking about visiting Boston and Niagra Falls. We would also like to include in our trip visits to any automobile attractions eg racetracks, car museums, car events/owners clubs/classic car days etc. Any suggestions for interesting routes would be appreciated and if there are any events or places you think we should not miss, please let us know. Also we love wacky stuff and enjoy a good night out!

    Looking forward to your suggestions and your routes!

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Sounds like a fun trip. Do you know if the native New Yorker has ever been on a roadtrip or drives? Most of my NY friends never bothered with driver's licenses...

    I am sure our New England members will be on board soon with suggestions.

    Default An Oldie But Goodie

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America forum.

    Here's a link to a previous thread on a very similar type trip. Philadelphia and New York aren't all that far apart. Besides the attractions listed there (By the way, that should be the Thousand Islands Region rather than the Thousand Lakes Region.) a few others that might appeal to you more directly are Watkins Glen in New York, which was the site of the US Grand Prix back in the days when Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark were active and still has a race course as well as one of my favorite New York State Parks, and the Stanley Museum in Kingfield, ME, home to the Stanleys of Steamer fame. Although a bit out of the way, the drive from Montréal down to the Maine coast through Kingfield is gorgeous.

    Thanks for that!

    The racecourse looks interesting and will definetly try to pay it a visit.

    Will now need to purchase a roadmap and get planning properly. Will check out the reviews on the website.

    Looking forward to it already!
