What to do after wedding in Northern PA

In May we will be visiting USA arriving on a Thursday for a wedding on the Saturday. After this we will have two weeks to explore.

The wedding is in North east PA close to NJ.

Would be interested in going to see Niagra Falls, but then open to suggestions.

Maybe Toronto,

Is it worth doing Niagra , Toronto then is there enough to stay in Canada ?

Or may drive west back into USA ?

Weve done most of PA and New England in addition to most of SW usa states. Open to any suggestions, like driving, but open to any forms travel, like city visits, wildlife , national parks, shopping outlets so bascially any suggestions for route please.

Thanks.

North East is nowhere near New Jersey -- it is close to New York. It's also close to Erie, PA, and is on Lake Erie. Niagara is certainly within range.

I don't know much about Toronto; can't help you there. Bear in mind that early May can be iffy, weather-wise, the farther north you go.

You say you've done most of PA and New England. Have you "done" Washington? It's driveable, with a stop overnight along the way (Gettysburg would be good). The DC museums are a great destination, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland is great for the outdoors stuff.

Hi,

Sorry about description of location, wedding is in East Stroudsburg, so close to you.

Yes weve done DC, so you think Toronto or even the west side of Canada ie Banff etc (if we flew) might still be affacted by snow etc in May. ??

Thanks

I'm assuming you've been to NYC? If not, that should definitely be on your list. With two weeks, you could spend a week there and then drive to Niagara, through New York state (Adirondacks are beautiful)...

be sure to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada if you do this.

Wow this is a good one because you have many options and can head in any direction. I guess it comes down to what are you looking for. You can head south and enjoy beautiful beach weather or as you mentioned Niagara Falls, Toronto, Montreal and then come back down into the US. I love Niagara Falls and you can easily spend 4 days there and then move to Toronto and Montreal or you could head into Virginia & the Carolinis'a and spend time in Colonial Willimsburg, VA, Mrytle Beach& Charleston,SC and Savannah, GA. Both trips would be outstanding and both very diff.erent. Check out each and see which one better suits your desires. Charleston & Savannah are great places to visit and MB offers a great beach with a lot of activities. I would spend 1 week in MB and split the remanining week between Charleston & Savaanah. Only do Colonial Williamsburg if you have any interest in that time period.Good luck

You should be safe on the weather in May. It is extremely rare to have snow in May in East Stroudsburg. While you are in the area, dont forget some of the local attractions such as Bushkill and Raymondskill falls as well as the historic town of Milford.

Delaware Water Gap is too scenic to miss also....and, if you have any interest, you can tour the world famous C.F.Martin guitar factory in Nazareth, not far south of East Stroudsburg. Hand made there since 1833.

Niagra for sure, maybe Finger Lakes region and Toronto could be worth a visit as well, depends on your interests. You can see an awful lot in two weeks.... can you be more specific about your priorities?

Cheers....

Never ask a yank about the weather in Canada. The weather in southern Ontario - including Toronto, Ottawa, and Quebec will be beautiful in May (especially the later part of the month). By the end of May usually people from southern Ontario and southern Quebec are turning on the air conditioning.
