We are flying in to NY on 20th March for 14 days. Due to high cost of hotels in NY over Easter weekend we are staying there before we fly home. We have 8 days in which we would like to tour and see a few sights. Now this is where I need the help! We were going to Niagara but looking at the maid of the mist opening and other attractions these all seem to open in mid May,so that idea was knocked on the head. Then we thought of Washington but as we are spending 5 days in NY we did not want more city! So... somebody suggested going north , having read a variety of posts we would be arriving at the end of winter and it may be more mud than snow? I have read the rough guide cover to cover but have found out very little info about the things available at this time of ya=ear.
We are a family of 4 (2 teens who love ski-ing )and a mum and dad who love scenery and USA!!
Any help gratefully rec.
