We're coming from Scandinavia to visit the US this summer. We are visiting some friends in Boston and also in Chicago, so we decided to try that great American tradition and make a 1-way roadtrip between them.
We plan to leave Boston in mid-July and arrive in Chicago about 5 or 6 days later. We have 3 small children in row (all under 5), so we were thinking of stopping in a 2-3 places for a night or two each. It would be really nice if we could find some cabins or relaxed resorts, ideally places where we have the option to self-cater but where sheets, towels, etc. are provided and we don't need to worry too much about cleaning. We would also like to try to visit Niagara Falls on the way.
We will really appreciate your hints and tips for places to stay! Also, looking at the map it seems that we would go round Lake Erie. Any thoughts about going round on the northern Canadian side vs. the southern US side?
Thanks in advance for your help!
