    Default 1-90 Upstate New York Roadtrip

    I'm planning a solo road trip from Indianapolis to I-90 (Buffalo, Cooperstown, Syracuse, Albany, possibly Boston) The only thing I have planned right now is a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame. I've never been to the area.. except for a Niagra trip years ago. I just need some time alone to figure some stuff out, and I'm just looking for suggestions on things to do in the areas I listed above. Thanks to everyone in advance.

    Default Mohawk River and Trail

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There is actually quite a lot to see and do on a trip across New York and Massachusetts on (roughly) I-90, but I-90 may not be the best road either to see it from or to 'figure some stuff out'. US-20 and MA-2 are two highways that may be more appropriate to what you have in mind. Here's a post with a few suggestions for things to see and do between Niagara and Boston.

    Default Many options

    The great thing about I-90 in New York is that it leads to many interesting side trips. You could head South into the Catskills region, North along the Hudson River into the Adirondacks, travel the farmland in the heart of the state, or just keep plowing through and head to Boston. You can hop off the highway in Western New York and travel NY-5 along the shores of Lake Erie, cruise down I-390 to Letchworth State Park, or travel from the Thruway to the Finger Lakes region.

    The state has a wealth of different environments from which to choose.

    I think a trip with more stops and less traffic is more conducive to the "figure things out" type of trip, especially since you want some time alone.
