Day 3 - Lake Michigan (110 miles)

As you cross the state line, you will come to Gary, the birthplace of Michael Jackson. After a little exploration carry on to your RV park and spend this evening marvelling over the beauty of Lake Michigan.
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. Whilst you’re in the area it’s worth visiting 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
