I will be traveling from East Providence, RI to Aurora (Toronto) Ontario on Friday 20th Sept. I only have one day to do this trip. Also, this is a one way trip. I would love to do some sightseeing, but I do realize that any sightseeing I do, it will be out of the window of my car going 60+ MPH. Looking at google, map, without having any expert opinion, I was thinking to take 146 out of East Providence to I-90 and then I-90 all the way to Buffalo airport and home from there.
I've following 2 questions:
I've never driven east of Rochester, NY on I-90. I always read terrible stories about bad traffic on I-90 going east towards Boston area. I am wondering what sort of traffic to expect as well as where does it get worse?
Do I have to take I-90?
I've driven I-90 west all the way to Cleveland and found it to be okay in terms of scenery, especially, in the State of New York. Once in PA and OH, there is not much to look out the window. Perhaps, going east will be different. However, I am wondering if I can take an alternate route which would give me the opportunity for different scenery. I am happy to see just greenery or falling leaves, if that is happening already.
I might be able to leave Thurday evening around 6pm and drive for an hour (maybe 2) and stop for the evening and then start again early morning before sunrise.
