We are driving from Victoria, BC, Canada, to Montreal, Quebec. We are moving and do have to pull a trailer, and we do have two kids traveling with us (ages: 8&2). I know that we are in for it, but we are going to try to make the best of it!
We are leaving June 9th and estimate it will take us 7-8 days, depending on......EVERYTHING :)
We have to travel a minimum of 450 miles per day as stipulated by our travel advance through my husbands job, so we are letting that be our guide. My question, is not so much about what to see, as we are not going to have much time for that, but which route would be best?
I have seen three different suggestions:
Canada 1- Through Canada the entire way
I-90- aka The southern route- through Washington, Idaho, Montanta, South Dakota, etc...
I-90 and I-94 The northern route- Pretty much the same, but cuts up through North Dakota and Minnesota
Are there people out there who have driven these routes? And, if so, which is more "populated"? I am worried about being stuck in the plains in June! Pretty much any advice will be gladly accepted, but I am really worried about taking the best route as far as just not being in the middle of nowhere for too long.
Also, I know there is a ferry across Lake Michigan, anyone reccomend it as opposed to driving around?
I tried to be as detailed as possible, I saw that was a common complaint when people posted, but please ask ask away!
Thank you in advance for your help and advice!
