Your Itinerary

Day 1 - UK to Chicago

Fly from the UK to Chicago by scheduled airline, with meals, drinks and seatback entertainment all provided. On arrival make your way to you your chosen Chicago hotel, for the start of your adventure.

Hotel: Millennium Knickerbocker

Day 2 - Chicago

Today you will see Chicago from a unique perspective, on a Land and River Tour. This comprehensive tour visits the business district, the Loop, the exclusive shopping areas and neighbourhoods. Then a shoreline cruise along the lakefront allows you to view the Chicago river, bridges and the famous Chicago Locks. 

Hotel: Millennium Knickerbocker

Day 3 - Lake Michigan (110 miles)

Pick up your motorhome in Chicago and head east around the shores of Lake Michigan, out of Illinois into Indiana. As you cross the state line, you will come to Gary, the birthplace of Michael Jackson. Then cross into Michigan, and to your first overnight stop, minutes from Lake Michigan’s superb beaches. Your KOA campground is also close to St. Joseph where the Curious Kids Museum “encourages discovery, wonder and awe”

Suggested Campground: Coloma/St. Joseph KOA

Day 4 - Detroit (175 miles)

On the way to Detroit, the home of ‘Motown’, you’ll pass by Battle Creek which is where a certain Dr Kellogg invented cold breakfasts. Your campsite is just a half-hour drive from Detroit and close to the Henry Ford Museum, a huge complex dedicated to the motor industry. It’s worth a visit to the Arctic Ring of Life at Detroit Zoo. At 4.2 acres, it’s the world’s largest polar bear exhibit and features the only Polar Passage, a 70 feet long clear tunnel in which visitors can get closer to diving and swimming polar bears and seals than anywhere else on earth.

Suggested Campground: Detroit Greenfield RV Park

Day 6 - Toronto (285 miles)

Cross from the centre of Detroit by bridge or tunnel into Canada. You will pass through Chatham, London and Cambridge, even cross the River Thames, to reach Toronto. When you arrive you could visit the popular CN Tower, until 2007 the world’s tallest freestanding structure.

Suggested Campground: Leisure Time Park

Day 8 - Niagara Falls (105 miles)

Toronto may well be somewhere you’ll choose to extend your stay but, if you’re carrying on, you’re headed around Lake Ontario bound for Niagara Falls. Along the way, you should see the Welland Canal which links Lakes Erie and Ontario. Its eight locks raise ships and enable them to bypass the 173 feet high Niagara Falls.

Suggested Campground: Campark Niagara Falls

Day 9 - Cleveland (230 miles)

Cross back into the United States and, passing Buffalo, take the interstate bound for Cleveland. This is another place where you may wish to extend your stay but make a start with the startling I.M. Pei design for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, allow plenty of time to wallow in the soundtrack of your life.

Suggested Campground: Woodside Lake Campground

Day 11 - Toledo (130 miles)

If you have children on board, or just if you are young at heart, do stop after 80 or so miles at Cedar Point Amusement Park, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World! There’s much more here but the roller coasters attract visitors from every part of the world. After the thrills, it’s only another hour on to Stony Ridge KOA to overnight.

Suggested Campground: Stony Ridge KOA

Day 12 - Chicago (260 miles)

Cross the state of Michigan today as you head back to Chicago. The journey should take around 4 hours but there are lots of photo opportunities along the route to help break up the drive.

Suggested Campground: Chicago Northwest KOA

Day 13 - Depart Chicago

Cross the state of Michigan today as you head back to Chicago. The journey should take around 4 hours but there are lots of photo opportunities along the route to help break up the drive.
