road trip - New York - Boston via Niagara

Jump to last reply

Hi, myself, husband and 2 x 18 year olds will be spending 11 nights touring your wonderful country during the last week in Aug 2011. We are flying from home in England to NY (we have been before) where we will probably spend the first 2 nights, We then intend to go to Niagara stopping on the way for one night - maybe somewhere in the Finger Lakes area? any suggestions would be helpful - we did a California trip last year and stayed at Big Bear Lake which we loved, so somewhere similar would be good? We would like to go via Pennsylvania and maybe visit an Amish community museum if possible en-route but realise this may be too far out of the way. We then want to stay at Niagara for a night. We wondered if there was a car ferry we could get to take us up towards perhaps the Mountains or somewhere you recommend. We would like to stay one or two nights en route going to New England and then finally staying at MV, Cope Cod and our last 2 nights at Boston from where we fly home. I realise we are squeezing a lot in but we would rather cram a great deal into a short space of time and see as much of your wonderful country as we can. We are happy to drive approximately 3-4 hours per day if necessary.

Thank you for your help
