The short of it: (1) Do you have any personal experience getting into Canada and re-entering the US with only a driver's license and birth certificate? (2) What is the drive like between Toronto and Ogdensburg for someone who has really only spent time in cities and driving on major highways up and down the East and West coasts? (3) What should we do in Toronto? [more inside]

Are there any fun, weird, or tasty roadside attractions on the drive from Rochester, NY to Grand Rapids, MI? We're going through Canada (Hamilton, London, etc.) then crossing back into the US at Sarnia (?) and going through Flint and Lansing.

- we've got 12 and 9 year old boys
- we're mainly trying to just get to our destination in one day, but would love some fun stops
- traveling in early April, so warm weather is not expected
My husband and I have just returned from a great trip to West Texas; both back to work tomorrow. In order to keep our sanity, need to start planning the next road trip. Any suggestions? Probably no more than 10-12 days during the summer and we are willing to fly to a start off point. We like to linger. Preferably in the US or Canada.

My girlfriend and I are taking a (return) cross-Canada road trip in April, and I'm getting pretty excited about it. We want to keep overall costs as low as possible, and I think purchasing a cheap Van is probably going to fit the bill. Any suggestions on makes/models? [more inside]

How can we make sure we're adequately prepared for our 12-day, 5,000 mile road trip from Salt Lake City, UT to Yellowknife, NT at the end of August? [more inside]

I'd like to take a road trip to Winnipeg later this summer and I'm not sure what there is to do. In order to figure this out I'd like to read some local blogs. What are some great Winnipeg-centic blogs?

We'll be passing through the Canadian Okanagan on a road trip from Seattle to Banff. We'd like to spend a day or two in the Okanagan on the way. Any tips on the best places to go/eat/drink/see while we're there? We like good eating, wine, and photographing pretty places.

I'm planning a road trip from Maine to Newfoundland in August or September '07. Could any Newfies/travelers share thoughts on cross-border car rental, the ferry system, the roads, and of course sights and places to stay? [more inside]

As part of a very large road trip I'm taking later in the summer, I'm planning on driving from Vancouver to Winnipeg. What's the best route, for scenic/cultural reasons or otherwise? Should I stay on Highway 1, cut up to Highway 16, or use something else?

I'll be driving across a rather large portion of Canada with my girlfriend in a little over two weeks: Vancouver Island to the southern portion of Ontario, a trip that covers roughly 4200km and should take the better portion of four or five days depending on how frequently we stop. My question for you, oh great teeming mass of Metafilterians, is what we should bring for the trip?
