Forks Market Rd, Winnipeg, MB R3C, Canada
The Forks area of Winnipeg gets its name from the union of two rivers, the Red River and the Assiniboine, and for 6,000 years has been a meeting place among people- first, among early Aboriginal peoples, followed by European fur traders. So it’s...
5542 Rochdale Blvd, Regina, SK S4X 4P1, Canada
If you have never experienced a sunset on the prairies then I suggest you do so. Since the plains are so flat in some areas you can see the sun set over the entire horizon. This sunset was on the north-west outskirts of Regina, SK and was right...
Downtown, Calgary, AB, Canada
Stephen Avenue, located downtown, features some delicious restaurants, bars, and unique shopping experiences for the cowboy/cowgirl in all of us. Even I, hesitantly, admitted to being attracted to at least one pair of cowboy boots with matching...
Improvement District No. 9, AB T0L, Canada
Alberta, Canada is an all-seasons destination thanks to an abundance of rugged beauty. In the winter months though skiing seems to take center stage, which is a shame since there are so many other great adventure activities in the region. One of...

Mount McIntyre, Whitehorse, YT Y1A 5Y9, Canada
Mt McIntyre ("Mount Mac") offers an easily-accessible high-country experience very close to downtown Whitehorse. Although a 4-wheel-drive vehicle is needed to get to the summit, rentals are available in town. The hiking up top is simply superb —...
Yellowknife, NT X0E, Canada
A dogsled, a snowy trail, and the aurora borealis (a.k.a., the northern lights). That is how many imagine the Northwest Territories —a winter wonderland, bathed in glowing lights. But you don’t have to wait for the long nights of winter to enjoy...
3515 McDonald Dr, Yellowknife, NT X1A 2H2, Canada
Yellowknife is small, as in you can walk the whole town in half a day. But give yourself the full day to take in the hike around the lake, a chance to pick out some white fish from the Great Slave Lake at the fish truck, which is parked in front...
Old Quebec, Québec City, QC, Canada
While walking within the walls of Old Québec a few years ago, (my fourth visit, but the first for my wife), this blond-maned horse caught my eye. Incidentally, in Québec French, "blonde" is more than just a hair color. It's often used to mean...
49 Rue d'Auteuil, Québec, QC G1R 4C2, Canada

I've been to Québec City several times, and it's never boring. Street art is all over Vieux-Québec (The "Old" city)—sculpture, plantings, frescoes... This is the Fresque du Petit Champlain, just a couple of blocks from the St. Lawrence River, a...
