My husband and I will be in Boston at the beginning of April, and need to make our way over to Toronto. We would like to hire a car in Boston and take about 5 days to do a scenic drive to Buffalo and then catch the train to Toronto.
So, the itinerary... my thinking is that we leave Boston, drive up through New Hampshire, then Vermont, then make our way over to Lake Placid and from there, make our way down to the Finger Lakes, then head to Niagara Falls, ending in Buffalo.
Given the time of year, I am looking for any advice of areas that won't be so pleasant due to possible weather. Also, this is our first time driving on the right hand side, so would prefer to avoid any snowy areas if possible. We would like to see beautiful countryside and picturesque towns. If you have any recommendations on routing or nice towns to stay in, please let me know.
Final question, do you think we would have time to leave boston and head to Newport before heading to New Hampshire or is that just backtracking?
