Aug 26 - Sep 10.
Mostly planned (is planning one of the best parts of roadtripping?).
But need a little advice on a couple of specifics.
Is Niagara Falls really all that? Or is it too touristy?
What's US20 like from Buffalo to Toledo? Is it worth - car hire permitting - heading into Canada to get to Detroit?
Mackinac Island - similar issue to Niagara Falls. Is it worth staying overnight? Or will we gag on the fudginess of it all?
Finally, even Jamie Jenson suggests that the drive across North Dakota is a little dull. Now, I'm a fan of Kansas but not a fan of Iowa (as driving states, you understand). How does ND compare?
Any fabulous, little known downtown hotels along the way that you might recommend? Already booked into the Grand Union in Fort Benton, MT and am trying to contact the Fort Peck Hotel, MT without much success.
Thanks in advance....P
