Many young families have turned to RVing as a great way to reconnect with family and explore the hidden Canadian gems that are in our very own back yard! In fact, more people own RVs in Canada than they do cottages or go skiing, with 14 per cent of Canadian households owning RVs compared to 10 per cent who own cottages. If you’re one of those Canadians who don’t want to stay in one spot this summer, check out our top 10 places you must see by RV.
Autumn is here, the kids are back in school, extracurricular classes are starting up again and families are busy. Camping, hiking and traveling seem like distant memories as we pack the tent away for another year and store the beach gear in the basement. Don’t put your hiking boots away just yet, though. I have three trips for you to do this fall that should be done at least once in your lifetime, if not every year.
With winter on everyone’s minds, local ski resorts are luring families with great deals, new facilities and diverse activities this season. The light, fluffy champagne powder, which douses the Rockies in Alberta and eastern BC, attracts international visitors from thousands of miles away each ski season. But it’s Calgary’s back yard, so pack up the SUV or hop on the ski bus and take advantage of the frosty family fun on our doorstep.
