I am planning a 4 day roadtrip with my family (parents, husband, brother and 5 kids) from NYC to Niagara Falls. I would like to have some stops on the way there and back. I have heard that the Adirondacks Mountains and Syracuse are on the route. The problem is I don't know how to map it out and what exactly is there is to do. Can anyone help me out? I basically want the kids to be able to get out and stretch and play for a few hours before getting back in the car for hours on end of driving. Also I was also thinking on the way back we would leave Sunday night and drive a few hours find a hotel to stay over night, do something Monday morning before driving back in the afternoon - any ideas?
