OK - here's what we came up with... Instead of going one place for a few days, we have decided to go on one long ride and visit multiple locations. Here's our rough itinerary:
Day 1 - Rhode Island (A) to Montreal (B) ~7 hours
Day 2 - Montreal (B) to Niagara Falls (D) ~7.5 hours
Day 3 - Niagara Falls (D) to Lake George, NY (E) ~6 hours
Day 4 - Lake George, NY (E) to Rhode Island (F) ~4 hours
We'll be stopping for a bit in Toronto (C), maybe check out the Hockey Hall of Fame then it's on to Niagara Falls - we plan on staying on the Canada side.
Here is a picture of the route (from MapQuest):
Any thoughts on this route? This being my first long trip, is there anything I should know before attempting this route? Also, are there any scenic routes just off the main routes that may be worth riding through? I plan on riding through Grand Isle, VT (I hear it's absolutely gorgeous!) then up Rt 225 over the border into Canada (might even save some time there as I'm sure the border wait there is much shorter than the interstate!) Are there any others?
Thanks everybody for your expertise.
