  1. Default Canadian road trip

    hey guys, I am in the DC area.

    We are planning a road trip to Canada, starting on Saturday, the 14th. This is the extremely rough outline

    - Leave DC on 14th, spend night in Syracuse with Sister
    - Leave Syracuse on 15th afternoon/evening, reach buffalo area and spend the night
    - do niagara falls, maybe spend a day or two (not sure how long it will take). go into Canada
    - do what?
    - do what?
    - we would like to come back into the US via Alexendria Bay (and get right on I 81), but this is also very flexible.

    We wanted to be home in DC by Saturday, the 21st. What do the Gurus suggest? we are very flexible, except the parts I outlined (syracuse, niagara).

    Suggestions plz!

    Do you have an atlas that includes Canada? (Most Rand McNally atlases do). Look at Ontario. Several things jumped out at me right away: Bruce Peninsula National Parks, and several likely looking Provincial Parks. Lake Huron.

    I am not well-traveled in the area, but those are the things that caught my eye as possibilities for us in the future.

    Ottawa is a great city within striking distance given your route constraints and vacation time.
