Need travel help from Toronto to Vermont!

Jump to last reply

My friend is attending a conference in Toronto in September and invited me to join her for one of the weekends. I am flying out of Austin, Texas to Toronto on the 16th of September and leaving Toronto on the 19th. Was talking to a friend about this and asked if she wanted to extend this little vacation for a few more days and she does. Neither of us have ever been to northern New York. I have been to Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Boston, Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, although it was in 1984...

We definitely want to see Niagara Falls -- probably in Canada and again in New York. We'd love to go through Buffalo or Rochester New York and then travel down to Vermont, hopefully as far as Arlington Vermont because I stayed at a fabulous B&B there on my 40th birthday, called the West Mountain Inn. The rest of our trip is totally up in the air. We don't know if we can rent a car and drive it to New York IF we drive it back to Toronto and fly out of there, or if it is cost prohibitive or we just aren't allowed to do that.

Anything we MUST try to see along the way? I think we're going to drive and stop when we want to, so that's why I don't think we want to take a bus or a train, unless we need to do that to get out of Canada and then rent a car in New York. Our trip will last from the 19th until the 23rd. We just want to see some pretty scenery and quaint little towns. Not interested in wineries as neither of us drink much at all.

Any suggestions? Especially on how we get from Toronto to Buffalo and whether or not we should go see Ottawa and Montreal before we head south to New York? It also appears we can travel from Burlington Vermont to Lake Champlain?

It's sort of surprising inasmuch as we are from Texas and it takes 15 hours to drive from the west border of Texas to the East.

Thank you so much!!

Melissa
