During our visit to Brockville, we also had a chance to check out the newly opened Aquatarium. The Aquatarium is a fun place to explore with children, as there are lots of hands-on activities to do and learn from.

Hiking the Trails of Killbear

Killbear provincial park
While driving to Northern Ontario we can see a drastic scenic change from rolling hills with farms and fields found in Southern Ontario to rugged, rocky landscapes with rocks and forests. This geological change is prominent when we visit Ontario Parks such as Killbear.

The Entomica Insectarium in Sault Ste. Marie

Entomica Insectarium in Sault Ste. Marie
I am glad my family and I visited the Entomica insectarium in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The visit helped us see how insects are important for vegetation, wildlife, and the eco-system. Getting to take an up-close look at the different insects during the tour by an expert in the insectarium really helped us see how each insect is unique. We enjoyed touching, holding, and observing the different insects from around the world. I felt this visit has helped us to become more empathetic towards insects.

Canal Historic Site in Sault Ste. Marie

Canal Historic Site in Sault Ste. Marie
During our recent road trip to Sault Ste. Marie, my family and I enjoyed visiting the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site. We can learn about how canals and locks operate at this site either by discovering at our leisure or joining a guided tour. By taking the guided tour and exploring the visitor's centre we learned a lot about the lock system and canals.

Our Visit to Grundy Lake Provincial Park

We loved our hikes at Grundy Lake Provincial Park because of the beautiful scenic views from every angle! Other than the bothersome flies, we enjoyed the peaceful scenic views, listening to the birds, and the sound of the frogs croaking. Our children loved the cliffs and the adventure of climbing them.
