Families: `We're going to Canada with our sons for three weeks in July. What would be a good itinerary for us?

Q We are taking our two sons (aged 10 and 12) to a family reunion weekend at Lake Rosseau in Muskoka, Canada, at the end of July. We have three weeks' holiday around it and were wondering how best to use the time. We would like to spend a few days camping around the lakes of Algonquin Provincial Park, and also visit Niagara Falls. We were also wondering about driving to Boston, but have no idea how far it is. The children would like to visit a theme park.

I live in rural Devon and the hunt sickens me.
