What a great site! This is my first post, but I've read lots of great ideas.
My friends and I are travelling from the UK and are starting our road trip in New York. The vague idea is to travel North-East through Conneticut, Massachusettes, New Hampshire, possibly Maine, then Vermont - we've heard that this part of America is beautiful in the Fall. We definitely want to pop over to Canada to see Niagra Falls, but then we'll be heading over (probably flying) to the West Coast to explore California and go to Las Vegas.
Like I said, this is just a vague plan. We've got a month to travel around, so there's plenty of room for detours and stop-offs. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?
