BEST OF THE EAST SELF DRIVE

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

The Niagara Falls, of course. But your Best of the East tour will also include some equally famous, and involving destinations.

Like the buzzing city of Toronto with its waterfront and vibrant downtown area. Like the natural wonders of Lake Ontario and Algonquin Park. Like the capital city of Ottawa, the Laurentians, the French-inspired Quebec City and Montreal.
