I am a guy from Germany with some road trip experience in the States.
Over New years eve and the following week me and my gf want to fly over the US and do a trip throughout the Northeast. Starting in NYC, we want to go up to Boston, Portland, Bangor, then head over to Canada to Quebec City, Montreal, and from there back to NYC through Vermont or the State of New York.
Unlike my other trips, this one brings some challanges with it. Therefore I would kindly ask you for advice.
- Is it possible to go with a US rental car to Canada? Is it very expensive? Anything I should consider?
- How cold is it in this region in December / January? Will we freeze do death? ;) How likely will there be snow?
- Talking about snow, do you think it is a good idea do drive to this region at this time at all? (e.g. will it be very dangerous)
- Usually I do my road trips during the spring or summer, without a lot of planning and just doing things when I see them while driving by. Is this area, especially in winter worth a visit? I mean landscape wise and also attraction wise (are there any open at all)?
Thank you a lot!
