Travel to Northeast
« on: March 26, 2020, 09:27:37 PM »
We have a 40' fifth wheel. We are looking to take a trip from Florida up to Niagara Falls and then over to Maine and back down thru Virginia.
Any suggestions on things to see / and things to avoid?
Also, I was looking at Rt. 3 going east thru the Adirondack Mountains / Park. Is this road advisable for large RV's?

When are you planning on taking this trip, and have you watched the news in the last couple of weeks?

It all sounds good except that part where you go on the trip.  I would avoid that part for the next couple of months.

Easy there.
This trip is only in the planning stages. I'm not from the moon, yes I have seen the news and no we are not going any time soon.
That's why I'm trying to take this time to do a little research and find out about the area and the road situations.

Rt.3 through the mountains in NY is "up and down and around".  Good road and very doable in a large RV.  Go ahead and plan, hope you are able to get off on this trip at some point this year.  Hard to say, right now, when things will improve, they are still going "downhill" at this point.

The Finger Lakes region in western NY has several stops that offer hiking such as Letchworth State Park (sites are large enough for your rig) and the Watkins Glen and Ithaca area (no state parks large enough for you but there is a KOA south of Watkins Glen that is big rig friendly (expensive, though)). Corning Museum of Glass is a good stop. And of course it's "wine country". Turning Stone Casino is just a bit east of there in Oneida/Vernon NY, a quick exit off I-90.
