I m planning family trip (driving) as well from Dallas to Niagara in first week September. We are not planning to cover Boston and Canada. I am still in planning phase, i am thinking of following route.
Dallas -> St Louis -> Chicago -> Niagara Falls -> NY -> DC -> Great Smoky Mountains NP -> Memphis -> Dallas
In your estimate, whats the minimum number of days i should plan this trip ? In mind i think of 1.5 week, Do you think i would be able to cover all the locations?
Any tips or advice based on experience.
