Best Route to Buffalo/Niagara Falls from Washington DC/Baltimore Area

Jump to last reply

I know there is mapquest, but i ve used several different directions and gotten 3 different routes that they say is the fastest. I have also gotten estimates ranging from 6.5 to 9 hours for the drive. Can somebody that has driven these roads tell me what route is the fastest and how long the drive is? The three routes from Baltimore/Washington to Buffalo/Niagara Falls are:


1) I-70 to I-76 to I-79 north to Erie to I-90 East to Buffalo, then I-190 north to Niagara Falls. This would of course the all-interstate option, but is much more distance than the other routes.


2) I-70 to I-99 north to US 322 to I-80 west to US 219 north to Buffalo to I-190 north to Niagara Falls. This is the shortest distance route,but is much more rural.


3) I-695 to I-83 north to Harrisburg,PA to US 22/US322 north to US 15 north through Williamsburg, PA to Corning, PA to I-86 west to I-390 north to I-90 west to Buffalo to I-290 north to I-190 north to Niagara Falls.




Which of these routes is the fastest and how long is the drive?


Thanks-
