Northeast with kids

Jump to last reply

We’re in early planning stage to revisit a friend who lives in New Jersey.
Intend to arrive around 7th Oct from Singapore, we plan to stay for 2.5weeks.
A few years ago with kid #1, we did a road trip up to New England so this time round we’re not looking at that direction.

The boys are 6 and 3 so I’m going to centre the trip around them as much as I can.

I will bring them on day trip/s to NYC (unless someone can recommend a cheap hotel to stay for a night or two) as I think my older will enjoy seeing the Statue of Liberty, visiting FAO etc.

We, the parents would like to visit Niagara Falls and I have thought about taking the flight but I think there are a quite a number of places along the route that offer farm stays, I would appreciate if someone who’s more familiar with the route to recommend any places that we can break up the drive on the way up and down.

Randolph, NJ would be our base.

Thank you.
