Family stop off NY State Thruway?

Jump to last reply

Hello! I could use some advice to help us plan our family vacation in June. We are driving from Columbus, Ohio to the Boston area and Cape Cod. It will be me, my husband, and our two young children, ages 2 and 5.

We're taking the New York State Thruway (I-90) across upstate NY both ways. We have found this to be much nicer and faster than I-80 through PA or I-76 through WVa and PA. (We do this trip often to visit family)

At some point during the trip, we're going to need to stop for the night. With two young children, we won't even try to make it in one shot!

Any recommendations for a decent place to stay, off I-90 or very close to I-90 in the stretch between Rochester and Utica? I'm predicting we'll be ready to stop somewhere around Rochester, Syracuse, Oneida, Utica. Just a decent place to stay overnight with the family, eat a good dinner and breakfast, and maybe explore a few shops or a point of interest before we hit the road again.

Thanks in advance!
