’25 Places in Canada Every Family Should Visit’

It’s summer vacation season, and with Canada’s 150th birthday this year and a weak Canadian dollar, many of us are choosing to stay home and discover a little more of our home and native land. But, before you go, you need to check out the new book 25 Places in Canada Every Family Should Visit. The book, by Calgary travel writer Jody Robbins, takes you coast to coast with detailed descriptions of THE BEST places for affordable family adventures in Canada.

Start a Little Free Library in your neighborhood

It has been so much fun familiarizing ourselves with our new neighborhood. Since being back in Calgary, we have noticed several things.  First of all, it stays light here until so late! Honestly, it really doesn’t get dark until 10 pm – it’s awesome. Calgary also has huge off leash dog parks – the city has really done a wonderful job of dedicating wide open spaces for our pooches to run free! And, just the other day, I noticed something so cute, I just had to blog about it.


Good eats along Calgary’s 17th Avenue

It had been quite some time since I’d been in Calgary and, more specifically, on 17th Avenue SW. I’m going to say 7 years…has it really been that long since we moved??

So, on our recent spring break, I was able to enjoy and view this great Canadian city through the lens of a tourist. No work, no carpools, no rush-hour traffic – we were simply there as visitors.
