At the end of February I'm going to New York. I'll stay there for several days and then I want to go to Boston, Portland, Montreal, Toronto and back to New York, all by car. Now I saw in google maps that you have to pay a toll for some of the streets. I was in Mexico last year and there I had to pay 20 US$ for half an hour on a turnpike. I was shocked! How much is it in the US? Is it recommendable to switch to free roads or are they bad?
Do you know any cheap motel chains? Are the prices they advertise for one room or for one person? Can you get coupons for motels (I've heard Americans have coupons for everything :-))?
Are there any things I HAVE to see or do in any of the above cities?
I will go to the library this week and get some books anyway, but maybe some of you guys have good advice.
