This summer when we visited Wendake in Quebec, we learned about the Huron Wendat people and how their lifestyle and lives changed after making contact with the French Jesuits in the 1600s. Our curiosity led us to Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons in Ontario.

We wanted to visit Québec City for a while, and was finally able to do this during our road trip from Ontario to New Brunswick. Québec City is located on the north bank of the Saint Lawrence River and offers unspoiled views of the Laurentian Mountains. It has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. During our visit, we had the pleasure of spending a night at Auberge Saint-Antoine, and checking out different places in Québec City on a bus tour of the city.

After our visit to the Huron Traditional Site, we checked into Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations in Wendake, Québec. This beautiful boutique hotel built in 2008 is inspired by First Nations' culture and the relations they share with the rest of the world: nature, spirituality, and mythology.

We had the pleasure of experiencing Park Omega last summer, and was able to have another wonderful opportunity to learn at the park during Canada day long weekend. There are many different accommodations we can stay at while exploring Parc Omega. This year, we stayed a night in a Tipi.

The 1500 acre Parc Omega is an amazing place to see wild animals native to Canada and Europe that can survive in the wild all year round.

There are so many places to see within downtown Montreal, and I am glad we went to check out the Pointe-à-Callière Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History that had the temporary exhibit of the epic journey of Marco Polo, as well as many fun permanent exhibits. It was fun for us to learn and see how the archaeologist go deep underground.

This summer my family and I enjoyed exploring Montreal, Quebec. Our drive to Montreal was about 5 hours from Toronto with a few stopovers at ONroute locations. We stayed over at the largest hotel in the province of Quebec, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. The Canadian National Railway built this downtown hotel in the 1950s.

My family and I had an awesome time watching Disney Frozen during the December holidays, when we all felt "frozen" because of the ice storm. Here is our thoughts about the movie. We enjoyed watching the movie again at home, and had lots of fun. This a movie that can be watched over and over again. You can own a copy of the movie when it releases on Blu-ray combo pack on March 18th.
