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.
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.
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.
The kids are back in school, life is slowly returning to normal, and the family summer vacation is starting to feel like a distant memory. Press ‘rewind’ with a weekend getaway this autumn and remind the kids how much fun a road trip can be together!
