Boston, MA to Kingston, ON

We are planning a trip to meet Canadian friends near Kingston, ON. We live north of Boston, MA.

The most direct way seems to be 90 (MA Pike) out to 90 in NY state and then north on 81.

Would any of you have suggestions as to a better route for a truck and fifth wheel?

I always value the advice given here and follow it with gratitude.

Define "better". The route You mentioned gives you the shortest time and clear, open highway most of the way.

In terms of better I guess I was wondering whether any of you might suggest a quieter secondary road with interesting scenery.

So often I see advice here from locals concerning road conditions and situations RV travelers might want to avoid. I figured where we are not familiar with the territory I might as well ask for any advice that might be available.

Thank you,
M2D

Well, you could go up I-93 to I-89 to Burlington, VT, then take US2 up through Grand Isle to Champlain, then US11 across the top of NY to Watertown. Or, if you want lots of scenery, I-89 into VT as far as Hartford, then US4 across VT to Rutland, then US7 north to Burlington. That would be all beautiful scenic road, but would take you 4-5 hours longer than staying on I-89. Either way, up through New England or straight through NY, it ought to be a beautiful trip.

I used to travel between the Cape and Malone, NY. I would take 93 to 89 at Concord to Rte 2 north of Burlington to Rte 11 in NY. It was a nice ride. From Malone take 37 to Massena, then cross into Cornwall Ont.

I'm looking at the reverse of 202 accross MA to 91 to 9 to Brattleboro accross VT to 7 into NY. I would skip the throughway and take 5 or 29 to 12 to 81 to the border. I have been over all of that except 202. Planning on that this fall, maybe. It is all truck route, a lot of 2 lane through open country. Hills in a lot of places. Slower but a lot more interesting.

nothermark..... Are you referring to US-202 or MA Rt 2? They're collocated for about 10 miles in central MA, but they're distinctly different roads.

Looking again MA 2 across the top of the state to I-495. Essentially across VT, down to MA to go east from there. I understand 2 From Greenfield to NY is twisty but hope Greenfield east will not be bad considering the co location of US-202 for most of it. As far as that goes the whole trip across there is mostly two lane scenic not super fast cruising.

Short story is I like to avoid the super slabs when reasonable and am not in a hurry. I also want to stop in Salem, NH with the towed to do a bit of shopping. Any thoughts on a place to camp in that direction would be appreciated. Then we are heading for the NE corner and dropping slowly down the coast. Take the towed over to Campobello Island and into Eastport. Would like to see the tides up that way.
