I am thinking of taking bus from Toronto to New York at the end of September and back by plane. I'd like to sight-see a bit of the cities and countryside on the way. I see that the bus passes by Niagara, Buffalo and some small cities.
What interesting sights are on the way that I would be pleased just to see from a passing bus? I am aware it's a 12-hour arduous trip. It would be my first time in the US, therefore I'd like to see a bit on the road of how life's like.
Also, how long is the border crossing at Niagara? I visited it some time ago and saw a long car queue to enter the US.
Update : I am talking about the common bus route by for example Megabus that passes through Burlington, Niagara, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Scranton then NY. I have been to Niagara recently and did see the traffic queue at border crossing. https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Toronto,+ON/New+York,+NY,+USAfirstname.lastname@example.org,-81.1211084,6z/am=t/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x89d4cb90d7c63ba5:0x323555502ab4c477!2m2!1d-79.3831843!2d43.653226!1m5!1m1!1s0x89c24fa5d33f083b:0xc80b8f06e177fe62!2m2!1d-74.0059728!2d40.7127753!3e3
