Interactive Learning at Science North and Dynamic Earth in Sudbury

sudbury science north
This summer we spent a couple of days exploring Sudbury in Northeastern Ontario, the famous Big Nickel! When the giant meteorite struck 1.85 billion years ago in the Sudbury region, it had created an ore-bearing impact structure, one of the world's most famous geological features. This is why this region has one of the largest concentrations of mines in the world. We loved exploring two famous attractions, the Science North and Dynamic Earth, as well as other family fun attractions in the area.

John R. Park Homestead leamington
During our visit to Leamington we had a few interesting experiences. We stepped back into the past when we visited John R. Park Homestead and Point Pelee National Park. Then we had a family adventure at Colasanti's, and learned all about farming at Lee and Maria's farm walking tour. While we explored the area we enjoyed delicious meals at Freddy's restaurant and Bradt's Butcher Block, and went to Sweet Retreat for ice cream.
