  1. Default Toronto to NYC... need desperate help?

    Hi everyone!

    Im a complete road trip novice however have got 10 days in December traveling from Toronto to NYC.

    I know were starting by getting a coach to Niagara Falls on Day 1, and then crossing the border and picking up a rental car, however from there onwards we have no plan!!

    We want to spent maybe 3 days in NYC, so that leaves 6/7 days of traveling.

    Has anyone got an suggestions on ways to go and places to visit?? Any suggestions would be great.

    We were thinking maybe Ohio, Pittsburgh and Washington as detours. The extra driving distances dont bother us as were going for the road trip experience.

    Thank you for your help!

    Default miles mean little

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Roadtrips aren't about putting on miles, they are about finding places that are interesting and fun, based on what fits with you and your goals.

    So having said that, you really haven't told us anything about what you might be interested in. You've listed a couple of cities/states that you're thinking about going, and those places would work on your timeline, buy why are you thinking of going there? What about those places seems interesting to you?

    Our interests are quite broad really, were both car fanatics, sports, music, films, live events, going out and just enjoy seeing new places and meeting new people.

    The places that i listed above are simply places that i've actually heard of! Lol. I dont actually have any idea what cool things are in them towns/what the locals enjoy doing!

    Im kind of looking for interesting places to go and to see what them places are like in general. For example, you go to Washington mainly to see the White House, or Las Vegas for the Casinos... However if you were to go to Pittsburgh, what do they have there thats worth seeing. I hope that makes sense!

    I've made a list of potential places for our road trip, so if anyone has any stories to tell or great spots to visit near them then that would be great advice:

    Detroit
    Chicago
    Indiana
    Kentucky
    Ohio
    Pittsburgh
    Washington
    Virginia
    Pennsylvania

    Thanks. Steve

    Everyone of the places you mention has a presence on the web, which will tell you all there is on and when. Why not go to the websites and look for the things you mention - music, life events, sports, etc. - and see if any of them co-incide with the dates. You may also find that there are events of the type you enjoy in some of the smaller towns across New York and Pennsylvania.

    As for Washington, it is much more than the White House... the many Smithsonian sites (all of which are free) could keep you occupied for weeks.

    I must admit, I had a good belly laugh when I first read the heading on this thread. Not sure if anyone here gives desperate help. LOL Maybe you meant you need help desperately.

  5. Default Niagara Falls, NY to Buffalo Int. Advice?!

    Hey everyone,

    Does anyone know how often the Metro runs in the Niagara Falls NY area? And if they do a service(s) that you can use to get from Niagara Falls NY to Buffalo International Airport??

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

    GLC? Are the metro buses get on and pay, or is it best to book in advance?? (If thats possible!)

    It's a city bus - you can't book anything in advance, pay when you get on, exact fare required, which appears to be $2.65. You toss the money in a box, coins and/or notes.

    having made this trip numerous times I can attest there's quite a bit to see. Not sure if Id go to Detroit, Kentucky or Chicago on a NYC-Toronto route. There are a ton of cool areas to see that would fit more in the mid atlantic, North East route.

    Perhaps, TO-NYC-Jersey-Philly-Pittsburgh-Cleveland-Toronto. (there are numerous smaller locales along the way you could check out.

    Out of curiosity why would one take a bus to Buffalo and then rent a car as opposed to renting a car in Toronto for the entiretrip?
