  1. Default NYC to Niagara Falls?


    I moved to NYC a few years ago from europe and shamefully I haven't taken, yet, a road trip to Niagara Falls. This summer I am planning to get there, and back, in 4 days :))) I would like to stop somewhere, for the night, on my way there, somewhere where there is something to experience, see, admire etc...... I will be traveling by car, with my husband and my mom who is visiting from europe. I would appreciate some good advice :)

    thank you,

    Default Many Choices

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There are at least a couple of different ways to go between New York City and Niagara Falls, but have a look at those two for starters, and if nothing there meets your needs, maybe we can offer some other alternatives.

    I would recommend doing some research on the Finger Lakes. They are about mid way on your trip and there are some great towns, lakes, shops, etc.

    Default Take the scenic route

    Watkins Glen would be a great stopover for you, and it is just over halfway to Niagara Falls, though only a 4-5 hour drive. Here is a guide for some things to see in that area, and another for Niagara Falls.

    I'd recommend driving the southern route through Pennsylvania on I-280/I-80/I-81/I-390/I-90. You can map it on Mapquest or Google Maps. This route keeps you on interstate highways most of the way, but it is more scenic than the New York Thruway (I-90). If you have the time and want to see another good park, Letchworth State Park is along the way on I-390 at Mount Morris Exit 6. You can spend a couple of hours in there.

    Don't forget to take passports with you to cross the border into Canada, as there is lots to see on both sides at Niagara.
