Route suggestions to Niagra Falls from the upper nidwest.

Howdy
Planning a fall trip to Niagra Falls, upsate NY, Maine etc, from the twin ciites of MN. Do not want to go via Chicago, thinking of passing through Sault St. Marie, Flint MI, Hamilton ON. Anyone have any experience, suggestions?

I would head north and follow the south shore of Lake Superior all the way to Sault Ste Marie, head south down the east shore of Michigan and then cut across Ontario to the Falls, I would stay on the Canadian side of the falls not the US side.The north side of the UP is more scenic than the south side and the US side of the falls is kind of run down compared to the Canadian side. This is the route we took going to the Canadian Maritimes a few years back.

Thanks, I re-call from many years ago, the Buffalo NW area, as not so nice. After the Falls - we are heading farther to New England area - upstate New York, New Hampshire etc, have you driven the 401 on the north side on Lake Ontario? We are planning the trip in September. Thanks much

No we stayed on the US side of Lake Ontario, followed the lake until we cut across to Lake Placid.

buffalo has come a long way now. We were there a little over a year ago and it has cleaned up nicely.

Visit the Veterans memorial at the port.

If it makes any difference, fuel is tremendously less expensive in the U.S.

I would agree with this! You'll catch I-75 at Sault Ste Marie. And you can take that all the way South to Detroit area, and then head east into Canada. The only issue with crossing into Canada is what you might have in your refrigerator. I don't think they want any fresh produce or meat.

I never really had a problem with fresh meat or vegetable in fact I've never really have been checked going into Canada but we did get stopped going into the US from NB and got searched from one end to the other because we set of the radiation sensors, the granite in Peggies Cove is radioactive and our RO System traped it. Be sure to have your passports.
