The largest freshwater ecosystem on earth, over 750 miles across and with 10,000 miles of coastline, America's Great Lakes are a wonderland of diverse natural environments, iconic wildlife and some of the most fascinating cities in North America.
Embark on an adventure in this under-explored region. Visit world-famous Niagara Falls - actually a group of three falls - and hear the majestic roar that has been immortalized in countless poems and literature. Or explore Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore, a tranquil park featuring immense sand dunes for climbing, forest trails for hiking, as well as bird-watching and wildlife viewing. Or enjoy an exciting day on idyllic Mackinac Island, which links Lake Huron and Lake Michigan, and is a haven for pedestrians and bicyclists as motor vehicles are banned. At the same time, city sophistication is never too far away. Toronto, Canada's largest and most diverse city, is renowned for its multicultural dining experiences, theaters, art galleries and museums.
This is a land that begs for exploration - whether by kayak, gliding silently past industrious otters or pink Precambrian rock islands - or by a visit to one of Cana's most prominent museums to marvel at paintings inspired by these shores.
