Driving to Toronto from Regina

Hi, I am driving to Toronto from Regina and I need a little advice on some things.

I am thinking of taking 3 days to get to Toronto (I will be alternating with another driver), but I really don't know enough to decide if US route is better than the Canadian one or vice versa. Also, if I am taking the US (or Canadian for that matter) route, where would be the most appropriate places to stay for the night considering that I am expecting to arrive in Toronto in 3 days???

Thanks in advance

Google maps is your friend. You can plan your route, with stops, taking into consideration how many hours you want to be driving each day. The Canadian route might look like this (drive time only - not including stops):


Regina - Kenora - 8 hours

Kenora - Wawa - 11 hours

Wawa - Toronto - 10 hours

Remember, driving at night would mean possible encounters with wildlife on the highway - try to drive during daylight hours.

You can also use Google maps to determine a similar route through the US.

Keep in mind the passport requirements for yourself and passenger of you choose the US route...

Driving through the States will be mainly on the Interstate highways - controlled access, high speed, and a McDonalds at almost every exit. It's a good way to make time, but a pretty boring drive, truth be told. You can check it on Google Maps, but from Regina I don't know that you would really save all that much time.

Straight across the Trans-Canada, yes, three solid days is about right. As mentioned, watch yourself on the Kenora to Sault Ste. Marie portion (about two hours past Wawa). Lots of moose and other critters near and on the road early and late in the day .... mid-day, you will be fine.

Is this a return trip? If so, I'd take the Canadian way to Toronto and go the US route on the way home.
