We had a wonderful time exploring Ferris Provincial Park located in Northumberland county in the small town of Campbellford. The park is a two hour drive from Toronto. It is connected to Ranney Falls, which has a colourful and exciting view from the lookout. We encountered garter snakes on the easy to explore trails.

Taking a creative approach when planning to travel can be easily done if it is planned. Let's take a look at what you might want to consider.

Unique Places
One of the main things you will want to consider is trying to find unique places. For us, this is the whole point of travel. For example, learning about turtles during our visit to the turtle hatchery. These types of unique places to visit is something that will make your travel experiences memorable. Whether that means visiting a Bamburgh Castle accommodation or going for something that you would normally not go to.
Transportation Needs
There are a lot of things to think about in regards to  transportation and how you plan to get around. It is likely to affect your experience considerably. For example, driving yourself around or taking a tuk tuk or local transportation for a unique experience.

Going Off The Beaten Path
Although, many people are keen to go off the beaten path, this could be surprisingly hard to do well. If you want to make sure that your travel experience is a little different explore the things you can do before visiting a place. Going off the beaten path will allow you to have a much better chance of enjoying yourself and really making the experience yours.

Speak To People
The more people you speak to, the more you will discover and learn about a place. Speaking to the locals or those who have lived in the place you plan to visit would be an easy way to find places that could make your trip unique.
