I think through Buffalo is your best bet. Being from OH, I mostly drive down I-75, which would be your Windsor route. I have driven both routes, and both are fairly easy, but I drive at night mostly, and straight through. If you go Windsor route, make sure you avoid Atlanta from 6-10 and 2:30-6:00. I personally like it between 11:00pm-2:00am.

Check out to see what fuel prices are along you route. Then you can get a better guess on expenses.

Have a safe trip.

From another Torontonian

We did the exact same trip last year with our Georgetown........however we travelled down in the fall so we didn't have any weather conditions to worry about. We travelled from Toronto to Fort Myers........not sure where you're heading. Total mileage was just short of 2500kms. or approx. 1500 miles. Travelled about 600km/400mi each day........approx an 8 hour day of travelling each day. You're not going to make great speeds, and if you do, it'll cost you big time.......we cruised at 60mph. Cost was about $200-$300/day for gas.

We stayed at KOA's all the way down.....we are members and get some discounts. Not sure how many are open this far North at this time of year.

I wouldn't travel if the roads are snow covered if you're a newbie. They don't have snow removal equipment for the roads like we do here in Ontario, and you don't have snow tires. Also, if there's lots of snow, salt and slush to cover the undercarriage.....I'd wanna make sure to clean it off REAL WELL when you get there.

Not sure of your destination in Florida, but we went QEW to I-90 towards Erie PA, then I-79 to KOA Washington PA for the night, continue I-79 to HWY 19 via Summersville to I-77 through Wytheville to KOA Statesville NC for the night, continue I-77 to Columbia SC then I-26 over to I-95 and then South to KOA Kingsland GA for the night, then wherever in Florida.

Hope that helps.
