Which Way To Upstate NY

We are currently in Forest City, IA and heading to the Mall of America in Minneapolis. From there we are heading east to upstate New York.

My question is, what would be the most senic and fun way to go to NY? I can go up and over through Canada or through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan or.......?

Suggestion would be appreciated.

New York

I would enter New York from Canadian side at Kingston that would put you in the 1000 island area of NY I grew up in upstate NY and traveled all over the state. This area sticks in my memory the most.


As long as you do not have firearms on board.

Upper UP was an enjoyable Ride the motorcycle when I was living in Chicago. I enjoyed Toronto very clean city. I would follow the lake around from the UP and go to Toronto then up to Kingston and avoid Detroit.

I would suggest that you travel through the UP, cross into Canada at Port Huron/Sarnia, head to Ontario Hwy 401, through Toronto, and cross into the US at I81. You'll end up near Syracuse, the Finger Lakes, etc. The only issue is that Toronto traffic is very heavy and is one of the more congested cities in North America. If you want to stay in Toronto, there is a good campground called Indian Line near the airport.

If you travel on the Canadian side from the UP area, some of the roads are not that great, but the scenery is pretty good.

The last time I was up there was a few years ago. A lot of fast open road. Avoid doing the stretch south of Sudbury on the weekend. There is a lot of traffic between cottage country north of Toronto and the city. If I was in a hurry I would go that way. If I was not in a hurry I would drop south on I-75 to I-69, cross at Port Huron and do 402 to 401. More interesting places to stop and poke.
