We’re more than ready to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with a little adventure and travel, and luckily for all of us, Jody Robbins has outlined her top five picks for summer destinations. So, go ahead and pack up the kids and get ready to explore!
Dinosaur Provincial Park
Alberta was once a stomping ground for over 40 species of dinosaurs dating back 85 million years, and this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the world’s most significant fossil beds. You can roam the grounds, just as these jurassic giants once did on self-guided tours, but die hard dino fans who want to dig deeper into the prehistoric past do well with interpretive tours such as the Centrosaurus Quarry hike or Explorer’s Bus. No visit to the Canadian Badlands is complete until you’ve moseyed into the saloon at the Patricia Hotel.
