OK. Here's my issue. I can drive, but I've inherited a bit of a driving phobia from my mom (who doesn't drive at all). In the small town where I'm originally from, I just stuck to regular roads and state highways. I've never liked the freeway. [more inside]

What to do between Toronto and Boston?

Please suggest places to see, things to do, places to stop/stay overnight, and routes to take for a five day car trip between Toronto and Boston? It should only be about 10 hours of direct driving, so plenty of time to stop and visit. Are there any really cool things I've never heard of and shouldn't miss? (Niagara Falls and Montreal are possibilities, but I've already heard of them :) Thank you!

Driving in heavy CA traffic

I am a 52 y/o woman with a perfect driving record but for the last 20 years I have only driven in Idaho--Boise is the biggest traffic I have seen in the last 20 years. We may be moving to the Fresno area and I will want to drive the freeways to LA and SF and be confident about it. I need advice because I have really developed some anxiety when I think about it. Last weekend my husband and I rented a car and drove from the Fresno airport to a smaller city nearby and I was even nervous as a passenger when he had to use the GPS to find our ways on the freeways. We had to keep up our speed even when we did not know when/where to turn off. The Hertz GPS magellan was not that good but it still looked nerve-wracking to me! What advice can you give me? I would love to be able to take off from Fresno and drive to LA for the day sometime. How will I get confident about this type of driving? It seems the traffic goes much faster than I am used to and people are changing lanes faster and with less notice too. I would be smart enough to know not to head to LA during the rush hours but even in lower traffic I am experiencing anxiety even thinking about it! Thanks for your help!

Road Trip Filter: Ithaca, Buffalo, Niagara Falls

I am going on a road trip next week that will include Ithaca, Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and points in between. I'd love some suggestions of fun, amazing, quirky, or air conditioned things to do along the way. We'll be coordinating rest stops so any 'in between' suggestions would be especially appreciated. Moderately physically active OK, strenuous not so much. Trip includes very small children.

New England to the Midwest: what's awesome near I-90?

We are moving cross-country and would like to plan the best route to get from New England to the Midwest, specifically to Minnesota. We were thinking of stopping at Niagara Falls and in Chicago along the way (to try Rick Bayless' restaurant!). I-90 looks pretty painfully dead along most of the way and we would like to know anything cool near I-90 along this route such as nice places to walk/parks/monuments and things to see, or great places to eat, keeping in mind that we are pescatarians so steakhouses and burger joints are not our bag. Also is there any merit to the idea of taking Route 401 through Canada rather than continuing I-90 through the USA, that would outweigh the negatives of not being able to use our smartphones while outside the States? Any ideas? Thank you for helping us entertain ourselves on a long long drive.
