Things to do: Boston to Niagara Falls


First time post, hopefully this is in the right forum section!

During a trip across the US that we have planned this Spring, we have left ourselves with 4 full days to cross from Boston to Niagara Falls in order to see some of Upstate New York, Vermont and the surrounding areas.

Basically, we'd be grateful if anybody had suggestions of things to do and places to see on this journey??

The drive from Boston to Niagara Falls shows as 6 hours and 45 minutes if you go a direct route. If you have more time, I would suggest your drive from Boston to Stowe, Vt and spend some time in Stowe. Then drive to Burlington, Vt, take the ferry to NY and then go to Ausable Chasm.

Some ideas that aren't so far out of the way could be the following. Around Syracuse, NY you can get off I-90 and go to Chittenango Falls State Park which has a beautiful waterfall. Not to far out of the way is Ithaca, NY with beautiful waterfalls, Cornell University campus, and nice wineries. If you like basketball, the Basketball Hall of Fame is in Springfield, Ma which shouldn't be out of the way driving from Boston to Albany on I-90 and a bit more out of the way but perhaps doable is the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

Enjoy your trip and let us know how it goes.
