Toronto to Chicago by car

Hi,

I will be driving to Chicago mid to late June with my wife and our 2 year old twins. Google Maps gives a time of 9 1/2 hrs, I am taking it as 12 hrs with the stops. I would like to stop for the day once we reach the half way mark, preferably after crossing into the US. We will be taking the Sarnia route. Any suggestions as to where we should stay for the night? Thanks!

Hello, DofT2, welcome to Trip Advisor (I see we have the honour of being your first stop on.

Generally, this kind of a post, where you're headed elsewhere OUT of Toronto, rather than into it, might best be answered by posting it in the receiving end forum, i.e. Chicago, or in one of the border cities where you'll cross into the US. If you use the drop down menu above where it says "Search in" and use "all forums", then type in the city you think might be able to help, that will bring you over to the appropriate forum.

Or you may wish to head to one of the non-city forums, specifically, the Road Trip forum, here: tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1-i12567-Road_Tri…

Generally, posting here in Toronto is for those people looking for info specific to Toronto and surrounding areas. But...sometimes you get lucky, and it is possible that someone who hangs around this forum may have info you need.

Safe trip!

If you want to stop approximately halfway, from Toronto to Flint, Michigan, will be about a 4 hour drive, to Lansing is about a 5 hour drive. My choice would a bit further - perhaps Grand Rapids if you to that far before heading south. A really nice place south of Grand Rapids is Saugatuck in Michigan.
