Travel from NYC to Toronto - Niagara Falls - and back.

Considering driving north to visit Niagara Falls. As I don't like spending that much time in the car I'd like to make more of the trip.

Head north from nyc stopping for a few nights (2 or 3 nights) in the finger lakes area.

Drive to Toronto to visit friends (1 night?)

Head towards Niagara Falls through Canada wine country.

Stay in Niagara area (2 nights).

Head back towards NYC.

Stop somewhere ? On drive back to nyc?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

I'd try driving to Toronto in two days to give yourself an extra day in TO, you won't regret it...

Yes, I'd add more time in Toronto as well.......Toronto is the 4th largest city in North America.......you'll find something of interest here.......what are your proposed dates of travel?

My daughter and I are celebrating our 30/60 birthdays with a trip to Niagara Falls for 2 nights in September, then wanting to take the train to New York City for 3 days. we will have 2 bags each (and she is pregnant) and i am seeing that to leave from the falls or from the Buffalo Exchange St station, we will have to take a train that does not allow checked bags and has no food service. We would like to take the Lake Shore Limited from the Depew station, but do not know how we will get from the Oakes Hotel in Niagara to the station. PLEASE HELP!

Hi Leah;

I think I would do this trip with 2 nights in the finger lakes area of New York. I quite liked Hammondsport, New York myself. I think 3 nights there would be too many. I'd recommend 2 nights in Toronto and 2 nights in Niagara Falls, ON. There is a fair amount to see in Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara-On-The-Lake and both are quite unique. 1 night in Niagara is too short a visit.
