Come up for air.
Looks like you could use some about now.
Just across the border is about 4 million square miles you can stretch out in. Pick a lake. Ontario alone has 250,000 of them, so you might even get one all to yourself.
Hike to Georgian Bay, clear blue water and an absolute rash of islands. Scuba dive to a sunken ship. There are about thirty of these right around the Bruce Peninsula.
Drive east through la belle province de Québec. Take the leisurely and beautiful 3-day trip around the Gaspé into northern New Brunswick.
Some of the finest fishing rivers in the world are waiting for you here.
Or go west. Prowl around a ghost town restored to its former grandeur. At Nelson, B.C. board the Nassokin, a retired paddle-wheel steamer now comfortably beached in a petunia bead. Its decks and salons have been transformed into a museum of Indian and Wild West antiquities.
Or, go up to Banff, Alberta, sit in a 110 degree Fahrenheit mineral spring and just contemplate the view.
What do we do for excitement in Canada?
That’s another story altogether. For when you’re up to it.
Georgian Bay (above.) Where there isn’t blue water, there’s a green island (thousands of them!) Read all about Ontario’s many resort areas… and don’t forget Ontario is just one of ten provinces you can escape to! Plan your getaway now.
