We are (me and my wife) are planning for a trip to Buffalo in Mid Oct (Driving to family to Toronto for 2 days and back). From there we want to either Drive(One way car rental) to NH (fall colors) via Albany (suggest any better route) to Manchester,NH. or fly to NH and then drive around for fall colors.
Second option is
(One way car rental)
Either way we are okay to take 1 or 2 stops (nights in a hotel) en route to enjoy the scenery.
Please suggest and share your experience at each Border crossings(wait time, number of lanes, timings etc). and best way to see fall colors
