Hi! I really need advice! I am planning a December vacation to NYC. We were considering staying for 4 days in NYC and then rent a car and drive to Whiteface mountain ( I read it will take 5 1/2 hours) stay for 3 days in whiteface and the hit the road again to Niagara falls ( I read it will take 6 hours) stay in Niagara for 3 days and then drive back to NYC and since it will take 8 hours we consider to stay for a night in the Poconos area... We do not have experience driving in winter road conditions and I don' t know if this proposed travel is safe or should we avoid this?? We love road trips but never have done one in winter months. Advice is greatly appreciated!!!
