I'm planning a road trip to take my parents on and I could really use some help/advice. We would leave from St. Louis Missouri and head to New York. I would want the trip to last less than 14 days. 14 days is the absolute max. Places we have to stop are Niagara Falls, Cooperstown and New York City. In a perfect world we would take a different route home. I guess what I ultimately want to know are recommendations of routes, must see places and how much time you would suggest in each place. Leaving from STL I figured we would take the most direct route I-70 through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, ect to Niagra Falls. Coming home I'd like to stop in Charleston and spend at least a whole day there. New York City we were thinking 3-4 days. Any suggestions, advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
