We are planning a road trip between 6-9 days the first week in August from Chicago (where we live). In the past we have driven to various spots in Wisconsin, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Kentucky, Asheville/Great Smokey Mountains, Minneapolis, and central IL.
We want to go someplace new and are considering a road trip to Toronto. We (two adults, 33 and 37) have up to 9 days for the road trip. We don't want to drive more than 15 hours to our destination which would fit perfectly for Toronto.
I was thinking it would be nice to be able to drive north through Michigan on the way there and loop through Buffalo and Cleveland on the way back. Are there any suggestions for this road trip or nice things to see along the way? My husband is not impressed with this idea and doesn't think it sounds very nice so I wanted to get some ideas from others.
We enjoy seeing beautiful scenery, wildlife, foodie stops, and visiting cities.
I have searched on similar threads but couldn't find too much information on this route.
