Just because winter is on the way, it does not mean you should stop exploring. Winter road trips can be so much fun! Not only are many destinations more picturesque in winter, they often offer off-season rates, additional outdoor activities and an opportunity to explore by skiing, snowshoes, sleigh ride and more.
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. We love day trips, weekend adventures and to explore Atlantic Canada.
We are sharing mainly our weekend wanderings, day trips within 2-3 hours of Moncton, NB (where we are from), and some longer adventures we have had in Atlantic Canada.
Any other travel will be shared in the appropriate categories.

Travel Tuesday - Packing for the Beach
There are a few things we always have in our beach bag that you may not think to take, so today for Travel Tuesday, I thought I would share what they are and why we have them. What do you always pack for a day or afternoon at the lake or ocean?
This beach is such a lovely spot for a relaxing stroll, exploring with the kids, a picnic lunch or just to stop and soak up the fresh sea air.
Discover NB Beaches - Tuft's Point & Long Beach
The Fundy Trail Pathway extended their car route further along the Fundy coastline to Tuft's Point (an now, 2018, beyond to Walten Glen Gorge). You enter the park after passing through St. Martin's NB, and you can read more about the park itself, here in our day tripping feature

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.
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.
Summer Road Trip Check List
Road Trips are so much fun and our family have always enjoyed road tripping in the summer months. Most of our road trips are within our home province of New Brunswick, and some others into Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
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 well as a Basic Car First Aid Kit, and Emergency Car Kit right here on this site.
