New Jersey to Niagara Falls with kids - mid-way destinations
Save

Hi. We are driving to Niagara falls in ON, Canada from NJ and are planning to stay there for two days. Travelling with a 5 yr old and a 1 yr old. We want to break our return trip at a mid-way destination for 1-2 nights. Would welcome any suggestions for kid friendly places. Finger Lakes? Some detour is ok but hopefully not too much of a detour. We are leaving tomorrow so would really appreciate any suggestions (its so last minute since our vaca to New Orleans got cancelled due to Isaac!)

Thanks a ton in advance!

Webguy,

We are leaving tomorrow as well, from Philadelphia. We're stopping in Syracuse for the night, as we can't leave until my son finishes a school sporting event later in the day. But we're stopping just as a place to sleep and it's roughly just past mid-way.

Not sure if it's on your route from where you are in NJ (or if it's of interest to your family) but perhaps Cooperstown - It would be out of the way if you're somming from South Jersery, possibly not if you're in Northern NJ.

From NJ to niagara, ,my kids always enjoyed Watkins Glen. This is a wonderful park, with the option to walk/climb the trail or ride the taxi one way...Corning Glass tour was also alot of fun
