I'm in the process of buying myself a brand new car, I should have it in a few weeks. To celebrate my new expense (as if I didn't have enough school debts already:-), I was thinking of going on a weekend road trip. I'd like to stretch it as far from home as I can (~1 000 km/day).
I thought about Labrador (NF), the Gaspe Peninsula (Qc), The James Bay (Ft Rupert, Eastmain) (Qc), Ontario, Michigan, NY or northern Pensylvania. I'd love to go to the beach, but too many tourists this time of the year, I feel more like going to quiet places : small towns, mountains, secluded lakes, back roads, historical monuments, cute museums... Any suggestions besides the Adirondacks, Niagara and the 1000 islands?
I'll either camp or sleep in the car so any advice about campgrounds or very very cheap motels would be much appreciated as well!
