You'll be surrounded by the Great Lakes on this trip as you skirt along Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Lake Huron, and stop off at Niagara Falls. Begin in Windsor where you can visit Jackson Park's Sunken Gardens, the Dieppe Gardens, the Art Gallery of Windsor, and the International Peace Fountain. Continue east to St. Thomas and bask in Victorian architecture as you tour City Hall, the Courthouse, Pinafore Park, and the St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Center. Travel north to Niagara Falls, where you will hear the roar of the water before gaining sight of it. View the falls from Table Rock House, Elements on the Falls, the Minolta Tower, and the Maid of the Mist tour boats--don't forget to walk through the tunnels that lie beneath the falls. Finish your tour in Chatham, the northernmost stop on the Underground Railroad and visit the Centennial Museum.
