My husband and I are driving our rv from Los Angeles to Maine to join a leaf-peeping caravan, which meets on September 13. I'm trying to decide how to go, figuring we'll probably leave mid-August and want to see Niagara Falls and Cooperstown in NY, Gettysburg in PA. I'm thinking northern route, given the weather in August, but once we hit the Great Lakes, it seems like a long loop out of the way to then start climbing north again towards Niagara. Any suggestions???
Also, for those of you who have gone to Macinac Island, would you recommend it and is there any quicker route to then get to Maine? I'm happy to drive through Canada for part of the trip.
Thanks to all of you in advance!
p.s. I should mention that my husband and I will both be retired by August and prefer not to drive over about 5 hours per day.
