In less than two weeks, I will be flying back to Banff to be the official navigator for my friend and ex-roommate D on her drive back to Ontario. Even though we're looking at a 35+ hour drive, I thought it'd be fun to hit some restaurants along the way and write about it on my blog! I have no knowledge about this region so I need your help, dear readers out there! I am not delusional as to think I have tons of readers but if there's anyone with recommendations, that would be greatly appreciated!
Our tentative itinerary.
There are many ways to drive back to Ontario: across Canada or going through the US, above the Great Lakes or below the Great Lakes. D wants to make it home as fast as possible so she can spend some quality time with her dog and this itinerary is one of the shorter ones. Some of the cities we'll be passing by, will include, although still tentative:
- Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
- Fargo, North Dakota
- Minneapolis, Minnesota
- Madison, Wisconsin
- Chicago, Illinois
- Detroit, Michican
I am currently doing research on eateries. D thought it would be fun to hit one of Guy's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. This is definitely a budget road trip so I'm looking for inexpensive food. We'll have sat in the car for hours, so no fancy restaurants please! I also want to try something that is unique to the city/region. The final constraint is that it cannot be too much out of the way of highways!
I can't wait to share our stories in the near future!
