Heya,

Heading east to VT/ME in a couple of weeks and running a stateside route again.

Looking for things along hwy 80, 90, 490, 790 and 91. I remember at one point seeing a sign that we were driving where a canal (erie?) once was.

Anyone run this way recently and find anything fun?

thanks

Mik

Mike,

My family was out that way last month, as well as a year ago.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is 5 miles south of Cleveland. Starts in Independence and heads south. Plenty of old Erie Canal locks can be seen there. There's a bike trail that runs the length of the park and a train can carry you back if you don't want to do a round trip. Certainly more than driving by and grabbing a cache or two.

In Buffalo, we stopped at the Teddy Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site. Only a handful of Presidents have taken the Oath of Office outside DC. TR's was in Buffalo after McKinley's assassination. About a one hour tour of the house. Great history if you're into that.

In Rome, NY (30 miles east of Syracuse) is Fort Stanwick. The kids loved this site. To see the before and after shots of how the reconstruction of this fort was completed is unbelievable. The visitor center is quite large and has loads of history with great exhibits. And the fort is "real cool" as one of my sons described it.

Cooperstown, NY (about 40 min. south of I90) has the Baseball Hall of Fame. You can spend lots of time checking that place out.

Wasn't sure if you were looking for caching locations or just interesting spots to see. Enjoy your trip.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is just north of I90 on the east side of Gary IN. Big sand dunes along the Lake Michigan shore.

If you're looking for a break to stretch your legs then Luensman Overlook Park in New York is a nice little park not too far from I90. There are 5 or so caches in the park, including this one: A View of Canada http://coord.info/GCP1RF.

Rock City is a really cool area, but it might be a bit too far off I90 - http://coord.info/GC14G5J

Have fun on the trip.

On our trip to geowoodstock and beyond last month, we traveled on Hwy 5 through Pennsylvania and New Yourk state. In addition to being a very scenic route and free from tolls, it reminded me very much of Door County. Some of my favorite caches on that route were: http://coord.info/GC2VJ4M , http://coord.info/GCK5YN, http://coord.info/GC2C4P8, as well as a bunch of caches at vineyards all along the route.

I forgot to mention that if you are going near Cleveland, there are some nice caches near the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, including http://coord.info/GC1V39F. Hava safe and fun trip!
