Must do's during my summer trip?

The wife and I are going to be driving to Niagara Falls this summer from Kansas, then looping through the Adirondacks and Catskills, then through the Appalachians through Penn, W. Virginia, and Kentucky before heading home. Our plan is to camp 3 nights, and motel every 4th. This way we only have to pay for a motel for 2/3 nights. (with all I have spent on my truck and guns lately we gotta go cheap).

The focus of our trip is outdoor exploration, hiking, wheeling, camping and such.

So with that in mind, anyone living in these areas who can suggest some must see, or must do items please post em here!

If I could get the time off of work, and someone to pay my bills, believe me brother I'd be there!

I grew up hunting and camping. My wife...not so much! I'm trying to break her in a few days at a time with motel breaks in between.

Hmmm, don't know about the rest, but i do know Niagara Falls...Been there many of times. Great view of one of the biggest water falls around, but very pricey to stay at (food, gas, hotel) At least if your staying on the Canadian side. Its one of the biggest tourist attractions in Ontario, hence the extra costs. But definitely worth it if your from Kansas. Do you plan on coming over the border? If so, i could recommend other sights or spots to check out.

All in all, sounds like you got a great road trip planned! I'm jealous, but plan on doing my own sometime soon. Have fun!

Definately we are going to cross the border. I grew up in upstate NY (Rochester area) and went to Canada all the time. I'm taking the wife back who has never been to Canada, so I thought we'd cross at the falls, then make our way through Ontario and come back in near Vermont. Anything you could suggest along the way would be awesome!

I can't really think of anything else right now...but I'll keep pondering on it.

Thanks. I moved away from Upstate when I was in the 7th grade so I'm not so familiar with sights which I did not grow up around. Please fill me in on anything you think of.

Cheers,
Bryan

Well you picked the perfect spot to cross into Canada at. Niagara Falls is one of the most romantic spots in Ontario, so you may have to stay the night there. Lots to see and a big casino to gamble at if thats what you like. You also could pop over into Toronto and and see the CN Tower and/or catch a BlueJays baseball game at the SkyDome (I think its called the Rogers Center now). I know Ottawa is the country's capital, it is outta the way for you (by about 6 hours) but parliament hill is pretty cool to look at. Ontario is home to the biggest in land fresh water lakes in North America. So there's LOTS of fishing to be done. (just make sure you get a license which should be cheap). Unfortunately, southern Ontario is filled with Liberals and mostly private farm land, so there's really not much fun to be had in the Off Roading department. But, if you do pop by Toronto, just a couple hours north and your in the Muskokas and the Kawartha's and plenty of logging roads and such to explore. More specifically, Bob Caygen has plenty of wheeling opportunities on Crown Land.

I think thats all i got for now, so have fun planning your trip out, it'll be one to remember for years to come no matter what you do.
