Since this is the July 4 weekend and also Canada day, how bad traffic do we have to expect, which route would you recommend (Port Huron or Windsor), and especially, which time should we drive?

What ever you do, avoid M14 and the US23 - I94 intersection, work around is to take Huron Parkway to Elsworth to Hewitt and get on 94 there.

I'd go on Friday ...

We usually cross in Detroit at the bridge, if you leave at about 2 PM, you should be there by 3.

One other thought -- while passports aren't 'required', I wouldn't go to Canada without one.
