Looks awesome, except I'd go westwards to reduce jet lag...

I agree, westward is the way to go!

Personally speaking, flying over the Western US and Canada to get to Niagara Falls is bypassing some of the most amazing scenery for a few hour's diversion... but that's just me.

Whatever you end up doing, have a great trip!

Are you cabbing or renting in DC? A cab from BWI to IAD will prolly cost a hundred bucks. I guess it really matters where you're staying
