Hi guys, I have been planning a trip out to Ottawa to visit one of my friends. I had originally intended to fly direct to Ottawa arriving on the 15th of September, however I am now thinking it could be the perfect opportunity to see a little bit of the states before I meet him. I was thinking about flying to an American Airport (still undecided as to where) on the 8th of September and then spending the following week travelling up to Ottawa. Just wondering if anyone had any advice about potential routes/interesting places to visit on my way up? For example i was thinking maybe arriving in Chicago and then heading through Detroit and Toronto or potentially approaching from the east and arriving in Philadelphia and travelling through Buffalo and Toronto to arrive there. I'm coming from Scotland and it is my first time ever out of Europe so I am incredibly excited, any advice would be very much appreciated!
