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.

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.

Interactive Learning at Science North and Dynamic Earth in Sudbury

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.

Learning to Camp graduate program at Sibbald Point

Camping is a lot of fun because it breaks our everyday routine. However, if you haven't gone camping before it can be intimidating! We became comfortable with car camping and investing in camping gear only after our session with Ontario Parks Learn to Camp few years ago. Since then we have gone on numerous camping trips at different Ontario Parks to enjoy the beauty of nature and to connect with each other.

Summertime equals road trips in our home! Every summer, before a road trip we do a routine clean up and check up to ensure we have all the summer essentials and are ready for fun. From ten-day road trips to three-day overnight trips, there are few things on our checklist we tick off, so everyone in the family can enjoy and have a memorable experience.

Holiday Inn Express at St. Jacobs in Waterloo
We took off from our everyday routine we've been on since school started, by staying at Holiday Inn Express at St. Jacobs in Waterloo. Autumn is a wonderful time in Canada to travel and see the beautiful scenic changes as the leaves showcase a variety of fall colours.
