My family (2 adults and 3 teenage children) will be travelling from Australia in April 2014 for a family member's birthday in Fort Erie ON. We are going to sneak off for about 3 days to go on a road trip and would love some ideas on where to go. I was thinking that we could do Toronto - Kingston - Algonquin Park. I know that that park is pretty much closed over winter but we don't have a choice of our dates due to this family event. The trip from Toronto to Kingston looks pretty easy but I am not sure where in Algonquin Park we should see. We would absolutely love to see some wildlife and the amazing scenery as we have only seen Toronto through to Fort Erie and of course the Niagara Falls region which is beautiful. Any ideas on stops along the way and hot spots to see particularly around Algonquin - it looks so big - very much appreciated.
And we really want to have time to explore so the driving time needs to be realistic so we are not in the car all day.
Any ideas, accommodation tips or other destination tips will be very welcome!
