  • A Tour of Vancouver's Wine Country
    Magnificent country estates nestled among rolling hills, fresh farm produce, Llamas, sheep, purebred horses and cattle and of course wine, glorious wine.
  • A Trip to Halifax
    If I had to sum up my trip to Halifax in one word, I would say “enlightening”. I expected to find myself in a sleepy fishing village, but as it turns out, Halifax is anything but tired. It’s a surprisingly vibrant, cosmopolitan place.
  • Beyond the Skyway: Hamilton's Great Outdoors
    Steeltown has segued from gritty to pretty. Just look beyond the heights of the Skyway Bridge for a wealth of eco-trails and conservation areas offering biking, birding, boating and more.

    Stratford, Ontario is more than just a theatre town. Much of Stratford’s tourist charm comes from its excellent selection of shopping centres, Mom and Pop stores and restaurants, and beautiful parks which are perfect for spending a relaxing afternoon in.
  • Down South in Windsor
    What Canadian city combines unique museums, classical concerts, festivals, and much more, all situated as far south as the United States? While many cities have a wide variety of activities and sights for tourists and locals to enjoy, Windsor has a special character born of its history and location. With museums, art galleries, concerts, and sights to see, Windsor has something for everyone.
  • Exploring Canada's Legislative Buildings
    Where is a good place to learn about the formation of a province or territory, or about the people who live there, or about what gives the area its unique flavour? Many people would probably think of a museum or community centre, but legislative buildings can be just as informative.

  • Ottawa on two wheels
    What is the best way to see Ottawa—on a tour bus, in a car, or perhaps in a slightly less traditional way? Visitors to Canada’s capital city may want to consider a combination of methods, but one way to see the sights in a unique way is to tour Ottawa by bicycle.
  • Rodin and Hiking: A Winnipeg Winter
    The nights are frosty and the cooler days now vastly outnumber the warm ones. In lakes and ponds, the ducks and geese are gathering, and occasionally a “V” of birds passes overhead. Signs of the end of summer are multiplying, and classes are in full swing for students of all ages. In Winnipeg, as in many other Canadian cities, fall is a time when people return from their summer travel to settle down for another season, getting back to the daily routines they put on hold for the warm summer months. Yet there are still many events to attract visitors to Manitoba's capital city in the fall and winter months; for activities ranging from sports to bird-watching to attending concerts, Winnipeg is the place to be in the coming season.
  • Sackville - One of life’s great stops
    Whether you stop by for a day or two or for the rest of your life, little Sackville has almost magical qualities of peace and contentment. Cars slow down as you cross the street. People wave hello. Bands play in the town park, the marsh breezes blow, birds sing their praises. Even time lets out a little sigh of relief.
