Route to and through Canada
We will be in the Chicago area mid-August and plan to be on Cape Cod for the labor day weekend. With several weeks in between we thought we might head into Canada through Sault Ste Marie and across to Montreal before heading south through VT/NH to get there.
That leaves us the option of going west of lake Michigan through WI to northern MI, or through IA and up central MI. As we have never been either way, are there any suggestions as to which route might be more interesting?
After entering Canada, we thought we might try going across 17 through North Bay and Ottawa. We have driven along Lake Ontario through Toronto and Kingston in the past and would like something different.
Suggestions for places to stop and things to see on the way are welcome. We also understand that we need our passports, proof of ownership for the vehicles, rabies vaccination certificates for the cats, and it is probably better to buy meats and some other food items in Canada rather than try to bring them in the RV. Also that coming back is worse in that regard.
Thanks in advance for thoughtful advice.
