My husband and I are flying from Australia into New York in July, and meeting friends who will be driving in from Montreal. We will be spending 5 days in New York City before heading north on a road trip that will end in Montreal.
We have 11 days to get from NYC to Montreal and below are our places of interest so far:
- Long Island (The Hamptons)
- Cape Cod
- Martha's Vineyard
- Burlington VT
- Lake Placid
Having never driven this area before, we are not sure how to tackle this itinerary. We are not sure where to stay overnight along the way, how long to stay for and what is worth seeing and what's not.
We considered leaving New York City, heading out to Long Island for a night, then catching the car ferry from Port Jefferson to Bridgeport and continuing our way up the coast line. Would we miss out on much along the way if we did the ferry trip across instead of driving?
We are stuck on where to go between Boston and Burlington also.
Any suggestions of where to go and places to stay are welcome!
