Ride with dad

If you had a week to go on a trip with your 77 year old Goldwing riding father leaving from Milwaukee, WI, where would you go? I'm thinking of staying to the north end of the country to avoid the south's summer heat. Any ideas?

I'd circum-navigate Lake Superior (w/ a tent!), then to Ottawa, south into NY's "Finger Lakes" region, then home to WI...!

I like Ed's idea. If you have time, and while you're in the Finger Lakes region, you could also dip into Pennsylvania and ride in the Wilds region south and west of Westboro.

Thank you for doing this...not everyone is so fortunate to be able to take such a ride with their Dad. Dad's First Ride.

Algonquin Park is a great place to visit/stay then head to Ottawa and cross the bridge into Quebec or head south for 30 minutes and you will be in NY state. The roads in that area of Quebec are great. Stay off the 4 lane highways, the views are better and the ride is more fun.

Canada it is! I'll get the maps out tomorrow and check out Algonquin Park etc. I had been thinking of taking great river road north then around north shore of superior but not sure where after that. We have a sick pet that probably won't be with us much longer. I would never not be there for him so we won't be leaving for a while.
