So, I am taking my sister on a road trip up to maine for spring break. We live in central PA and I want to take her to all the beautiful places and some of the hidden/unknown places. I need help planning where we should stop in any of the states above us and maybe slightly into Canada. Help is greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks!

Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park. You simply have to allow for a few days here. In fact the entire coast of Maine is pretty special. How much time do you have and what are your interests? If it's weeks I'd say Cape Cod etc but if it's only a week or so I'd simply make a bee line for Maine. The Jersey shores are nice but you can see them anytime.

I have a week and I think we might go to Canada instead and Niagara Falls. Have any thoughts about cheap things we can do in Niagara and prob Montreal? I have already been to Jersey so I was thinking Boston. I don't think there will be enough time to go to Montreal and Boston so I have to decide where I want to really go.

Keep in mind that I believe you now need a passport to enter Canada. I went to Niagra Falls but it was when I was a kid and I really need to go back. In those days crossing the border meant telling the guard where you were born and that you love your mother.

Montreal is a fascinating city, it's like going to Europe in a lot of ways. I've heard Quebec City is even more so that way but I've never made the trip. Although I gotta say typing this has just given me an idea. Thanks!
