Yoho National Park is Banff’s ‘off the beaten path’ next-door neighbor. Take a trip here this winter and you’ll find peaceful trails to enjoy with your family - without the large crowds that you’d normally encounter at nearby Lake Louise. Ski or snowshoe across one of the most beautiful lakes in the Canadian Rockies at Emerald Lake, ski into Lake O’Hara and spend the night at a cozy backcountry cabin, or snowshoe to Wapta Falls and experience a frozen winter wonderland few visitors to our Rockies will ever experience.
Aworld-class zoo, a real aircraft carrier you can tour, dozens of museums, beautiful beaches, an island paradise resort - and a non-stop flight that will get you there in just three hours. San Diego is calling you! We were invited to enjoy a four-day stay in the area by the San Diego Tourism Authority to experience all that the city has to offer for visiting families.
While your budget might put the squeeze on dining out regularly at restaurants, don’t completely cross the option off of your mealtime menu. Eating out, even occasionally, can help kids develop communication skills and learn acceptable behavior in a public place.
Who wants to be a spectator while the kids have all the sporty fun? These days, it’s all about getting the whole family involved, learning new things together, experiencing caching and healthy activities. And, of course, winter sports are the perfect fit when we live so close to world-famous ski hills.
