Where do we start ...every year we ask the same question ..and the answer is always quite simple really...find a site that has like minded people ( like here ) and ask the collective wisdom for their advice. So here I am.
Now to the fun part well , the question: Mmmm this always sounds easier then it actually is so here goes !
My wife and I will fly into Boston on the 14th June this will be our first time in New England and we plan to spend 5 nights in Boston; will hopefully give us time to do the tourist things ..lol. Part 2 of the trip is to catch a train yes people a train, something I have not been on for at least 15 years and never ever had the experience of catching one in the USA. So its the train from Boston on the 19th June to the "Big Apple" and another 5 nights to explore .
Now here comes the difficult bit I have arranged in a moment of sheer madness to hire a car from Avis for 16 days and that we are going to collect it from central Manhatten which should be fun. So now I am after ideas of what best to see and how much can I cram in , in these 16 days. These are bits that must be included within our trip;
1) We must end up in Boston on the 9th July
2) We would like to visit Niagara Falls.
Also we would like to split the driving between boring interstates and nice country roads.
Current ideas are;
1) New York -D.C.-Niagara-Boston Would this be too much to take in, in such a short time. Would we end up just stoping each night to sleep and not really seeing anything .
2) New York - Niagara - Boston. this involes just taking our time driving through NYS to the falls and back through VT to Boston.
So fellow travelers its now down to you to hopefully try and steer me in the right directions ...seriously any input would be much appericated.
thanks all of you in advance
