8 day Road Trip!

1.Arrive in Providence, rent a car. Visit new port Rhode Island. Spend the first night around here.

2.Drive to Boston. Second night here

3.Boston. Third night here.

4. Morning drive from Boston to White mountains. Spend the fourth night around the mountains.

5.Morning drive to Niagara Falls, stop at at Albany on the way there. Arriving at night so we would spend the night in the Canada side most likely. 5th night.

6.Niagara Falls all day. 6th night.

7.Possibly visit Toronto and spend the last seventh night here or in the same hotel as the Niagara Falls.

8. All day drive to New Jersey and end of the trip.

Any thoughts on this itinerary?

It is a LOT of driving. And I am wondering, why New Jersey? Are you flying out of there?

Not a trip I'd care to take but whatever. Just because I wouldn't be up for so much driving is such a tight time doesn't mean you won't.

Unless you have a particular reason for stopping in Albany I wouldn't. It's not that difficult to drive into but it can be confusing and it's not sure a great city to see IMO. I'd pick a smaller town in the area when you're ready to stop. I'm assuming you just want to grab lunch.

I am moving to New York on July 4th so ending the rental car around New Jersey would be cheaper than dropping it off at at NY location.

We read that it could be a nice town to stop and see. Since it’s in the way we thought why not

Be prepared to pay an extra $50/night to park the car at your Boston hotel.
