Before I start, I know numerous Aussies that have used this forum to get invaluable advice and I'm hoping I get the same treatment. Now, not knowing how to feed your information it might be easier just to note some points.
Travelling with family (3 adults + 3 kids) in mid to late September. We arrive and New York and we are then hoping to cross off the following items on our to do list in, no particular order but aware of are time constraints.
1) Washington DC - to do the touristy things and hopefully catch the Redskins v Lions (22/9). - maybe 3 nights
2) Visit long lost relative in Greenville PA. (mandatory) - 1-2 nights
3) Niagara Falls - 2 nights
4) Montreal (mandatory - relatives once again) - 4 nights
5) Back to New York - 2 nights in transit somewhere
So, without pushing our friendship could anyone provide advice as to possible scenic routes and places to visit or stopovers.
