We have 2+ (almost 3) weeks to get from Orlando to Toronto. We want to travel by way of the east coast so we can do "things" in the following states: NJ, DE, RI, CT, VT, & NH. (By "things", we mean camping overnight or seeing something major so we can "fill in the state" on our travel map.) We want to avoid New York City. DC is a seperate trip next spring so that's out. Upstate NY looks interesting. We are pulling a trailer with 2 30# Propane so we need to avoid any restricted tunels or bridges. We plan on Ben & Jerry's in VT. We have done Williamsburg.

Hi BeenThere,
We go to Toronto quite often from VT. We cross over to NY and take I 87 to Plattsburgh. We then head over and cross the border at the Cornwall Canada crossing and take 401 to Toronto. From mid-state VT to Toronto it's about 8 hours without the trailer. I will pm you with some very specfic directions a friend gave me. These came from someone who "commuted" from VT to Toronto. You might consider the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory on your tour as well. The Shelburne Museum is also quite interesting. If you have other questions about VT, please feel free to email me.

If you go through NH, then you'll want to visit Conway...full of outlet stores and don't miss Jeb's for some old-fashioned items (and food) that are hard to find. Also from here, you can see Mt. Washington, the tallest peak on the East Coast. Lots of covered bridges in NH and VT. Conway is on Route 16 which you catch off I-95 in Portsmouth (home of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard). A stop in Boston at the former Naval Shipyard is excellent and you can visit the USS CONSITUTION, launced in 1798. It's the oldest commissioned ship in the U.S. Navy. You will be given a brochure which I wrote over 25 years ago.

I live 10 minutes from Portsmouth,if you need an overnight.If you do decide to take 95,you could always jump on 101,a little scenic , takes you into vermont and NY.We have been where Lynn is talking about and it is some of the best scenery you will ever see.Portsmouth also has a submarine from the 50's you can tour, a quick tour.It is small compared to today's,but awsome anyway.
