* In terms of hotels, I only stayed at The Holiday Inn properties (under IHG) during my entire trip. I gladly collected many reward points while doing this and am now a Platinum member. I also stayed with some friends and family in a few different areas and air BnB’d in Toronto, Canada.
** My 2015 Toyota Prius held up pretty nicely. I did one service checkup in Charlotte, NC (almost halfway through the road trip) while my car was still under warranty.
Keep in mind that if you are using a NON-HYBRID car to do this trip, multiply the gas amount by at least 2.
*** I received a moving violation in Canada of all places, while driving to Niagara Falls from Toronto. Word of advice: when driving in Canada, always have your phone mounted in your car. If you are ever caught with it in your hand, it’s a $490 (CAD) ticket. They are very strict about this law. Ouch!
