Hi all, I am traveling to the USA north east coast in December 2018 / January 2019 with my family (4 kids under the age of 9)and wife and her mother. We are looking at arriving in New York on the 12th December and traveling by 7 seat van to Boston, then up to Montreal, across to Toronto then onto Michigan to spend Christmas with family and then back to New York for a week before flying home on the 9th January. Can anyone suggest best travel destinations and routes to take during this time?

Has anyone had a good experience renting from CruiseAmerica? Or can you recommend another…
Hey, me and my family, (2 adults and 1 child), are planning a trip to Chicago from DC during the Spring Break, we will only stay there for 3 nights, but we would like to do a nice road trip to get there.

Most beautiful roads? Thanks!
My housemate and I (both from Belgium) are planning a trip to some of the most famous National Parks of the US.
We arrive in SLC and depart in San Francisco, and rented a campervan as we hope to camp inside the National Parks to get an early start. We put together an itinerary but were wondering whether our itinerary is realistic, if we planned too much/too little time in a certain NP, etc. All recommendation/experiences are welcome to help us prepare for our trip.
We look forward to your…
