Road Trip! Need advice for travelling between Toronto and Philly

Hi all, I know we've got a canny few people living in North America so I'm asking for a bit of knowledge.

 

I'm going on a trip with a few mates and we're thinking about going to Toronto then driving down to Philadelphia. We're arriving on the 19th of may and want to be in Philly by the 26th, what I want to know is if there is anything cool to do in between the two locations (excluding Niagra falls).

 

It doesn't have to be a big tourist attraction, I'd prefer a small town that's hosting a hotdog eating competition or some such. I'm trying to find a web site of things to do in New York State but I've only found stuff about New York City.

 

Any suggestions would be a great help.

 

Cheers lads/lasses

I've told you man. The only thing in New York State apart from NYC, is Mike & the Buffalo Bills. Mike won't tell you where he lives, and the Buffalo Bills hate it so much that they're gonna move to Toronto. Give it up.

Do as much as you can in Toronto, then drive straight to Philly and do a lot there.  In between is mostly igloos and gun clubs.

 

:snod: :lol: :snod:

 

I've told him this about four million times. He's having none of it.

 

edit: Just google mapped the drive between Toronto and Philly/ my place, the drive is only 8 hours 19 mins. Just get that done in a day. Or at worst stay at a murder motel on the way for a night if you must. Or just fucking fly.

What I wanna know is how they can pack such an amazing festival into just 9 short days!?

If you are interested in wine, there are dozens of wineries in the Niagara Falls area.

Do you have any particular interests?

 

 

(I'm being helpful now because I plan to visit Newcastle in September and will be seeking local help and suggestions, not just brutal sarcasm)   :lol:

 

 

I love food + sports mainly, don't mind museums and all that. Just want a proper slice of Americana while I'm over there. After about 3 hours of looking on interweb I may just suggest we fly to Boston and make our way to Philly via the east coast. Bit of a gutter as I really wanted to see Toronto.

Whichever way you go, take some time to get off the interstates and take some smaller roads. the interstates are just about the same wherever you are. Back roads will give you a slice of America, for better or worse.

Agreed with B-more Mag, if you just get on the interstate and drive from one city to the next, the only spectacular things you will see are petrol stations.

 

 

Here are some "road trip" websites:

 

Road Trip America - http://www.roadtripamerica.com/mainmenu.htm

 

Roadfood (the State Directory down the page has lots of entries for places to eat in New York State and Pennsylvania) - http://www.roadfood.com/Restaurants/

 

Southern Ontario Tourism - http://www.soto.on.ca/

 

 

And there is always TripAdvisor - you could spend hours on that site.

I'd agree, but it's all mountains and forests and they've got 2 people who can drive, but haven't driven in 8 years or something. I'm scared that they might not ever arrive...

 

how long have you been in the US now man? :lol:

 

you talk like you've walked every blade of grass
