I'm planning a summer road trip with the goal of hitting all of the Great Lakes. This plan is very, very new, and hardly fleshed out at all. I'm reaching out to you guys to gather advice on routes, stops, and anything else you may have to offer.
I'll be starting from Westchester, New York, with the end goal being the southern coast of Lake Superior. As of right now, I would like to get to Michigan through Lower Ontario, Canada.
Here are some questions, bearing in mind that my goal during this trip is to see natural attractions and wonders:
- What are some of the places you suggest I hit up along the way?
- How much money (approximately) would GAS ALONE cost to get up to Lake Superior and back down? If it helps, I'm driving a 2013 Honda CRV which has an average 21/31 city/highway miles per gallon.
- Is this a feasible 5-7 day trip, or would it take longer? If I kept it to 5-7 days, would I be rushing the trip?
- Lastly, any advice you have on road tripping in general (this is only my second trip, the other being only a day trip up to Saratoga Springs)
Thanks so much if you took the time to reply to this, I really would appreciate any information I get that will help make this process easier.
