Fastest way to go from Stowe, to Niagara Falls? good stops on the way for lunch and snacks.
I've traveled only once from New York to Niagara FallsNiagara Falls. The fastest route is I-87 to I-90, and it's a rather dull route. There's not much to see but you'll get to your destination the fastest. It is safer if you're traveling in winter (the highway is well salted).
I think from StoweStowe you'll take I-89 and connect to I-87.
You can stop in the SyracuseSyracuse area restaurants like Pronto Joey's, Ruby Tuesday, and Denny's (off I-90 exit 35). There's also a McDonalds and Dunkin Donut at the same exit.
