Road trip: Iowa, Miss. River, MN, UP, Ontario, Montreal, VT, NY, PA, MI

Thanks, all. These are great suggestions, and I've already altered our route to accommodate some of them.

Road trip through Ontario and Quebec

My wife and I are taking off for an 18-day road trip next week.

The trip is roughly: Chicago → Iowa City → Trempealeau, WI → Mississipi River → Minneapolis → Apostle Islands/Lake Superior → Upper Peninsula → Sault Ste Marie → Sudbury, Ontario → Ottowa → Montreal → Quebec City → Lake Champlain, Vermont → Adirondack Mountains → Niagara Falls → Pittsburgh → Cedar Point → Ypsilanti, Michigan → Chicago.

We're interested in seeing all sorts of stuff, but most important to us are the restaurants. I'd be happy to base the entire route on hitting three good spots a day. I can get good big city recommendations from other threads, but I'm not sure about the places in between. If you've been on those paths, where would you recommend we stop?

Also note that everything is flexible. For instance, we're considering bypassing the upper road and going through Manitoulin and Bruce Peninsula if we can get the times to work out. If you feel that'd be more worth it, by all means let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks!

My wife and I are taking a circle tour kinda-sorta of the Great Lakes. The trip is roughly: Chicago → Iowa City → Trempealeau, WI → Mississipi River → Minneapolis → Apostle Islands/Lake Superior → Upper Peninsula → Mackinac Island → Sault Ste Marie → Sudbury, Ontario → Montreal → Quebec City → Lake Champlain, Vermont → Adirondack Mountains → Niagara Falls → Pittsburgh → Ypsilanti, Michigan → Chicago. (Here is the vaguely USA-shaped route we're probably-maybe taking, via GoogleMaps: http://tinyurl.com/6felf5

We've got a few ideas, from these boards, Roadfood, and the Road Trip USA book, but we still have lots of gaps. If you've been to those destinations, or on those paths, where would you recommend we stop?
