Ride along on the 6,500-mile Great Lakes Circle Tour: a scenic, 
international road system connecting the five Great Lakes and the St. 
Lawrence River! Promoting travel and tourism along the shores of "North 
America's Fresh Coast," the Circle Tour showcases the world's largest 
body of fresh water, its most famous waterfall and other unique natural 
features. Whether you are camping at one of the many national, state or 
provincial parks or enjoying the symphony in an historic, urban 
district, the Circle Tour can accommodate a spectrum of experiences. For 
new visitors to the region, this online travel guide offers 
informational maps, road routes and estimated mileage, and links to 
major cities, camping and recreation areas, and natural attractions.
