Proposed trip to Canada USA in Summer 2011. We are staying in Waupoos Island, and need to stop in Toronto, and Boston.

Since we are in the area, we might as well stop by Niagara Falls. According to Google it is only 4 hours from Boston to New York City. So it would seem prudent to get NYC over with.

Proposed route:


Areas of interest, and possible sleep overs.

Niagara Falls
NYC: Time Square
NYC: Central Park
NYC: Nat.History Museum
NYC: Statue of Liberty, don't care to go to Liberty Island, but at least see it from afar. Can you see it from Jersey turnpike?
Letchworth national park
Dorian Lake theme park
Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson, New Jersey- Just an 80-minute drive from Manhattan sits the largest theme park in the world. Six Flags Great Adventure features 12 monster roller coasters and includes a Wild Safari. There is also Six  Flags Hurricane Harbor right next door (the largest water park in the Northeast). New Jersey Transit also provides bus service from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan when the park is open (May-October). 
Jersey Shore, New Jersey- The Jersey Shore starts just a few miles south of New York City. It stretches for almost 130 miles, and along it are private and public beaches. There are numerous activities along the Jersey Shore. A convenient train ride on the NJ Transit trains from Penn Station will get you to several of the towns on the Jersey Shore, including Manasquan and Point Pleasant Beach. 
Long Island— When you travel to NYC in the summer, a great idea is to check out Long Island. With its beautiful long white sanded beaches you can have it all: the big city and the summer holiday. Many New Yorkers do that every Friday, Saturday and Sunday if it is hot. Take the Long Island Rail Road from Penn Station to Long Beach ($6.75 one way), and from there go south to the beach itself. Take a day trip on the Hampton Jitney from various stops in NYC to the East End, where Long Island wine country is on the North Fork and The Hamptons are on the South Fork. 

NYC: Grand Central Station?
NYC: Central Zoo
NYC: The Cloisters
