Travel Tuesday – Order Your FREE Canadian Travel Guides

This is the time of year that many provinces are sending out their free travel guides. If you are planning a trip or just want to explore your home province, these guides are a fabulous resource. 

Yes, all the info is available online, but I find when planning out my days or longer trips, having the paper guide to browse, is much more pleasant. I then use my phone or laptop to research details, like visiting websites for accommodations, restaurants, and activities.

Winter Road Trip Check List

Winter Road Trip Check List

We are trying harder each year to enjoy more time outside in the Winter. In Eastern Canada, we tend to get a large accumulation of snow most years. This is great if you are into skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or other snow-related activities. We love things like Sleigh Rides (List of New Brunswick Sleigh Rides), and Outdoor Skating (In Moncton), or later in the season, visiting Maple Sugar Camps.

As I have been planning activities this Winter, checking out festivals (such as the Jack Frost Festival in PEI), looking for activities to do as a family, or seeking venues to visit within a few hours of our home, I got to thinking about what to take with us. Packing the car up for a Winter Road Trip is a little different than what I pack in the warmer Summer months.

In our vehicle, we pack a Road Trip Kit, and now have different seasonal lists of what to pack. You can find these printable lists for Summer or Winter, as shown below.
