This summer, I am planning to take a trip with my family from Toronto (where I am staying now) to Vancouver Island thru the USA. I am planning to drive the route of Toronto west on Hwy 401 then west on Interstate 94 to Montana then Interstate 90 to Washington state and Seattle where there are ferries to Vancouver island.
I have relatives living in Victoria, and I would like to visit them. When we drive back, we plan to visit Banff, Yoho, etc.
I have 2 main questions: Google maps says it takes 1 day and 19 hours to make the drive from Toronto to Victoria (Vancouver Island). Is this an accurate time? Also, what is there to see between Chicago and Seattle? I know there are rocky mountains once we hit Montana, but anything else?
