Great Lakes extended road trip

Jump to last reply

I am just beginning to to plan an extended summer 2018 road trip for my husband and I
- over sixty, able to hike but not bikers etc.
- trip length 5 to 8 weeks if no family / business emergencies.
NO CAMPING LOL

FOCUS Scenery, nature, unusual experiences, maybe golf if nothing else to do. Love waterfalls and lighthouse views.

CONS - not into cities or historical sites particularly ....although we have read about the Erie Canal road tour and are intrigued.

After experience with Forum help on a 2015 western trip, would not even THINK of starting this without all of you! There were sights we would never have been able to enjoy without this community.

Prelim plan to travel from Florida around Memorial Weekend, moving fairly quickly along east coast
( we can always cover those states on shorter, future trips from Florida)
spending time in Maine for Acadia and New Hampshire before starting the lakes.

Definitely intend to renew our passports before then, so we can cross to / from Canada for most scenic routes. LOVE local roads vs interstates

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and tips - or skips.
