Anyone have a prefer driving route up to Lake Placid? We are debating between 95N via Philly and NYC, or 81N via Albany.
I drive up to Binghamton via I-81, across to Albany via I-88/90, and then up to Lake Placid on I-87. It is a little further, but you avoid the NYC, much of the traffic, and the tolls.
I second what Kevin suggested. You are better off taking 83-N thru Harrisburg, then heading NE on 81. I can't recall how long it took me last year, but it was much more relaxing and more importantly.....hardly any tolls (only in NY).
