Explore Canada this Summer

July 22, 2019

We’re finally experiencing some terrific weather after a long, damp, and cool spring, which encourages us to enjoy the great outdoors while it lasts. Many Canadians are also enjoying some much-needed vacation time with their families and looking for some adventure. Summer is an excellent time for Canadians and their families to explore Canada. We all know our country has incomparable natural heritage, fascinating historical sites, and limitless cultural diversity just waiting to be enjoyed. If you’re looking for a Canadian adventure this summer, the first place to help you begin your Canadian travel experience is to visit Keep Exploring.

Keep Exploring, an official site of Destination Canada, provides helpful information for discovering Canada by providing excellent trip ideas, as well as inspiration for wonderful places to visit and interesting things to do. The website, https://caen-keepexploring.canada.travel/, is divided into “where to go,” “what to do,” and “helping you plan” for a truly Canadian travel experience. The website offers ideas for exciting Canadian destinations to visit. You can begin your search by province or territory and from there, learn more about the respective province or territory, as well as suggested things to see and do in each, and access to suggested itineraries tailored to every interest. You can also find helpful information to assist with your travel plans, ranging from time zones, various forms of transportation, to maps.

The Keep Exploring website also gives visitors the option of planning an adventure by theme, which is broken down by: “Vibrant Cities,” “Journeys,” “Culture,” “Food & Drink,” “Adventure,” and “Natural Wonders.” After selecting one of these links, you can view many, many ideas for experiences tailored to that particular theme. It could be anything from “Prince Edward Island’s coolest small towns” to a “foodie’s guide to Montreal.” After clicking on an adventure idea, you’re then provided with detailed information about what to see and do along with web links to suggested places to visit for that specific adventure.

You can also visit https://travel.gc.ca/canadian-tourism for more information on Canada’s country-wide system of national parks; planning a visit to Canada’s Capital Region; national historic sites; as well as national museums and galleries.

The Keep Exploring website is an immensely helpful tool to help you and your family begin planning an exciting and uniquely Canadian travel experience this summer. There are countless places to see and things do across our spectacular country not only during this season, but throughout the entire year. I encourage you to explore Canada, whether it’s a local festival right here in Dufferin-Caledon or hiking in Saskatchewan. The possibilities are endless in the ‘True North!’
