I have a question about driving through NY to Maine. My dad will be doing the drive from Texas at the end of the month and wants to avoid NYC and the traffic. He will be coming on 78. Would he be better taking the New Jersey Turnpike and cross over on 80/95 and continue on 95 that way, or could he take the Garden State Parkway all the way to 87/287 further North, then continue on 287 until he hits 95 close to Conn? Different sites are telling us different ways. Anyone have advice, please? I will also put on NY forum , as well.
