Shortly after we set out on this trip we had an interesting epiphany while camping in Mackinaw City. The kids were playing on the beach of Lake Huron and we realized than in a few days they would be playing in the water of Lake Superior at my Uncle's place. They have gone to the beach of Lake Michigan numerous times so if we could figure out how to get to beaches for Lakes Ontario and Erie they could have played in all 5 Great Lakes! So the day we left Niagara Falls we actually set out north to Niagara-on-the-Lake get to a beach on Lake Ontario and then directly south to Fort Erie to catch Lake Erie before crossing the border back into the US and continuing on.
Nothing spectacular, but a fun check mark on that list of things you have done in your life...especially when your parents grew up by the Great Lakes!
Have you been to all 5 Great Lakes? What are your best memories?
