We are planning a 10 day trip around the Great Lakes for the last week of July. We are riding our motorcycle so we want to limit our driving to an average of 300 miles per day. We plan on avoiding interstate travel as much as possible. We are thinking that we will leave from Iowa, cross Illinois and catch Lake Michigan at the Indiana Dunes National Seashore. Then cut across Michigan and Ohio camping at Port Clinton on Lake Erie. We are planning on cutting through to Canada at Niagra Falls stopping at Lake Ontario along the way. We'll cross through Canada north of Gorgion Bay and come through the UP of Michigan at Saute St. Marie catching both Lake Huron and Superior. We'll follow Lake Michigan to the Green Bay area and then head back to Iowa. If time allows we may go around Lake Ontario instead of cutting through at Niagra Falls.
Our goal is to enjoy the ride, soak up some great scenery and see the lakes for the first time. Can anyone offer advice of great scenic roads to travel, must have stops along the way and places that we just shouldn't miss? Thanks! ~Safe traveling!
