Weekend in Canada Guides

I have spent a lot of time traveling around the world, and often write posts about my foreign adventures, but I also love to explore and promote my awesome home country Canada! Over the last few years, I have been extensively traveling around Canada and have discovered some amazing spots I wanted to share. I created this special Weekend Guide series to cover some really fun, short trips I’ve discovered around Canada. From big cities to smaller, less-touristed spots, these guides detail the must-see spots, along with lots of photography tips. I hope these guides inspires you to explore more of the best country on earth!
