New York to Michigan..Any ideas??

Its that time a year again! Thanks to this forum, We were able to visit some great places on our trip through Kentucky and Tennessee last year. This year we are planning a summer trip from New York to Michigan. I need suggestions of places to see, visit and stay. We are ending up at Sunnybrook RV resort in South haven Mi. I'm open to all routes and suggestions. Thanks to all!!

If you shortcut through Canada, leave your guns at home.

I don't know your starting point, but Niagara Falls is in NY. Cross the border into Canada and travel to Detroit or Port Huron crossings back to USA. Don't forget your passports. If you are going through Ohio and have youngsters then spend a day or 2 at Cedar Point. They have many roller coasters and some are huge.

Of course if you are traveling the Queen's hwy (Canada) you shoudl have a passport. IF you take the southern route you can cut north long about Sandusky (Ceader Point amusement park) and take hwy 2 (I think it is) along the south shore of the lake, then cut up towards Detroit on I-75/I-275 then west on I-94 and avoid tolls but before you try that check out the MDOT web page MDOT - Michigan Department of Transportation and make sure there is not a lot of construction in your way.

Or I-275 to I-96 west, whichever is the better route for you

NOTE: Neither route takes you into Detroit.. Wayne county yes, Detroit, no.

I did just the opposite last year we went from IL to NY and points north.
1 suggestion is to have an ez-pass for the trip. I used my ILL I-pass through the interstate system back east and this saved a lot of time going through the toll booths. Did cost about $116 in total user fees on the tollways but I did not have to have that amount of cash on me for tolls.

In South Haven MI eat at a place called SMALL PLATES food is great. Clementine's is over rated as far as I am concern; we have been going to South Haven and renting a summer home there for the last 5 or 6 years. The farmer market on Saturday and Wednesday really brings in the traffic.

Another great camp ground is Duck Creek in Muskegon Mi; grand kids love the pool and going to the beach there.

One of the best campgrounds we stayed at in NY was in Bath NY called Hickory Hill.

Good Luck

We enjoyed the Henry Ford museum and Geenfield village enormously. You need to allocate at least one day to each. They are located in Dearborn. Camped in Yipsilanti.

You will not be disappointed!

We looked at Duck Creek. If Sunnybrook is full, we will go there. Thanks for the reply!

We did Niagara Fall 2 years ago. Great trip. We stayed at a campground called The Branches of Niagara, great place. We drove the toad into Canada. What is it like to take the motorhome into Canada? Does customs come on board and check everything?

If you are travelling across the state, another great car museum is Gilmore Car Museum - Welcome They even have a dry camping area in a meadow with electricity. $10/night.

Also, economy camping near Dearborn / Ypsilanti Wayne County Fairgrounds - Belleville Michigan

And Great Michigan Cities - Hotels, Restaurants, Shopping, Golf, Casinos

Traveling thru Northern Ohio you have the Mohican State Park / Amish cities (Millersburg, Walnut Creek, Sugarcreek Berlin) This route will allow you to by-pass the Ohio Turnpike.

Not far from Ceder Point you have East Harbor State Park. While there you can ferry over to Put-in-Bay for the day. Also Marblehead Lighthouse.

If you plan to travel through Canada, make sure to gas up in the US (either in NY, or in MI).
Safe Travels!
