Going to toronto from Boston Via New Hampshire and VT

Hi

We are driving from Boston to Niagra Falls .We don't want to spend too much time in NH & Vt. What is at least one thing that I should see in each place? Where to eat? Where to sleep? Should I bite the bullet and drive straight to Toronto or should I sleep somewhere in between Boston to Toronto ( I know that it is over 11 hours drive). I thank you in advance!

You can drive to toronto by cutting through VT and NH up into northern NY then into Ontario and then along lake ontario. This is a long drive for one day so make it two days.

Hi Anamadison;

About 165 miles / 265 km, a 3 hour drive east of Toronto, are the towns of Kingston and Gananoque.

In the town of Kingston, you won't want to miss Fort Henry, which has been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization. (UNESCO)

The original Fort Henry was built during the War of 1812, between Canada and the United States.

Just 18 miles / 28 km east of Kingston is Gananoque (pronounced GAN-AN-OCK-WAY), the "Gateway to the Thousand Islands". You can take a 1 hr, 2.5 hr, or 5 hr boat tour of the 1000 Islands.

The 5 hour tour stops at Boldt Castle, which was built in 1900 by the former owner of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. If you wish to walk about the island and tour through the castle, you will need to clear U.S. Customs, as the island is in American waters. Be sure that you bring your identification as required.

While in Gananoque, check out;

The Thousand Islands Playhouse for great live theatre.
