Hello Roadtrip America Forum! I am new to this forum and I am in the process of gathering as much info as possible on my upcoming family roadtrip in just a couple weeks!!!
Starting July 21st, my family (Me, Wife, 2 small children and mother in-law) are going to a family reunion just east of Montreal. The reunion is on a private property and they have a giant camp out and festival every 2yrs. We decided to rent an RV and take the week off and tour around the Northeast for a bit.
We fly into boston on Saturday and we rented a large RV and plan to drive over to Niagara Falls then up to Montreal and stay the weekend at the ranch. Then finally back to Boston and fly home. I have absolutely no idea what is in between these destinations (born and raised in California) but we have done our research and found a few things to do. We have our itenerary set and campgrounds booked.
SATURDAY - Fly into boston 8am-2pm (5pm east coast)Check into hotel - BostonFenway Park - Red Sox Game 7-9pm (or as long as kids stay awake)

TUESDAY - Niagara Falls Tour 9-12. Drive to Rochester Kids Mueseum 2hrs. Kids Museum 2hrs 2-4pm. Drive to Brenan Beach Camp 2hrs.
WEDNESDAY - All Day Brennans Beach - Maybe a Local lighhouse or castle tourrs
THURSDAY - Dive to Boldt Castle 1hr - 8-9am. Boldt Castle Tour (2hrs) 9-11am. Lunch & drive to Campground 3hrs. Camp at Lancaster Park.

Sunday - Drive to Boston 6am-12pm. Drop off RV - 12-2pm. Flight Home 4pm-9pm (6pm pacific)
So... What do you think of the road trip? Couple questions for any locals or people who have done this....
1. Is there any road restrictions for large RV's on these routes? (Bridges, tunnels, etc..)
2. Is there lots of tolls and stops along the way? Should I plan extra time and money for tolls and stops?
3. Is there any quick roadside attractions that you would suggest? Or any great restaurants along the way that we should not miss?
4. Anything on my list or in your memory of things that i should completely avoid? (bad tours or roads to avoid in large RV)
Thanks for the help!
