I was in Canada recently (New Brunswick) and I kept seeing signs on the highway that the exit had a tourist info center. Needing to use the bathroom, I got off, made the left or right according to the question mark sign and then drove for a while looking for it. However no other sign was there. This happened quite a lot.

I'm heading into Canada again (Ontario) and I would like to know how far off the exit these tourist info centers are? Do I need to drive more than 20km to it? Kind of frustrating when you really got to go and nothing else is on the exit.

There are some that are integrated into the service station/rest stop that you see along the 401. They used to be separated at one time.

I'm telling you, Canada's rest stops and tourist info are a national disgrace. My wife and I were on the road for 5 years in the USA and there just is NO comparison at all. American rest areas all along most interstates are amazing. Beautiful buildings kept CLEAN. Even on state roads there are rest areas. We were in all 48 states south of Canada and it's like some of the states must be competing on, who has the best rest stops.

I have driven coast to coast in Canada many times and it's just pathetic how bad the facilities for travellers are. I'm heading from Niagara Falls to Thunder Bay on Saturday and in that long long drive there not one decent place. The ones there are are dirty and grungy.
