I'm planning a roadtrip from Chicago to Niagara Falls. As this is my first roadtrip, I would really appreciate any advice on accomodations (there and on the way), food, mileages, possible stopovers and any other advice. A few more pressing questions:
1) Is one week enough? What is the optimal time to spend for this trip?
2) Are there any other places worth visiting along the way or there?
3) How much will mileage amount to? Should I rent a car or drive my own?
4) Is travelling solo safe?
Thanks in advance.
