Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump: Fun First Nations History

Aug
20

In southern Alberta, just an hour's drive north of the US border is a fantastic history museum called Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.  As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is a must-see if you are in the area, and is well worth the drive if you are even in the areas of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park or Calgary, Alberta.

Now it's our favourite place to travel to with our kids. In the summer the population of our little island doubles with the onslaught of vacationers. If you find yourself in Kingston, the mainland town across from Wolfe Island, or in the vicinity, here are five places you definitely want to take your kids!

Toronto

Nov
23

Our trip to Canada was or first big family trip. When I say "big" I mean across the ocean where the flight itself lasted for hours, and where we took our 6-year old daughter. We've visited Toronto and its attractions plus we made a short visit to Niagara Falls. We also visited island on Lake Ontario just in front of Toronto from where there is an unique view of Toronto - just like from the postcards. We didn't had much time to spend wondering around since this was combined business/leisure trip.
