We did the circle tour; left in August and spent three nights in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. We drove there from Superior, Wisconsin, in one day. The next day we did the 8-hour train ride to and from the Agawa Canyon. The third day we spent noodling the city. Then we traveled on to Marathon, Ontario; spent the night and noodled the city sights.
Next morning we traveled back home, stopping for good coffee and a terrific breakfast at the Red Dog Inn. Loved the fact that they opened at 6 a. m.! You don’t want to miss Young’s General Store in Wawa. And don’t be fooled by the bathrooms that look like outhouses; they really are modern. Loved all of the lovely gardens and flowers along the way. And the parks! They are numerous and clean and full of flowers, walkways and benches to sit on when we tired.
We will definitely do this again in the fall of 2014. If the scenery is this spectacular now, imagine how it will be in full, fall color! I ordered the Lake Superior Travel Guide and Lake Superior, The Ultimate Guide to the Region before taking the tour and found both very helpful. Thanks!
