Tip 51: Visit Rouge National Urban Park in Ontario

In the latest installment of our blog on "Chuck and Danny's Road Trip," Chuck Hughes and Danny Smiles point out that Rouge Urban National Park is home to some of the last working farms in the Greater Toronto Area.

Tip 52: Visit B.C.'s Haida Gwaii by Zodiac or kayak

"It's not like any other part of Canada - or probably the world! It's a temperate rainforest paradise full of amazing vegetation and wildlife, with Haida guides to help you understand the totems, living sites, and surroundings. Breathtaking!" -- Member Ellen

Tip 53: Bike the Leslie Street Spit in Toronto

"Get a great view of the city after a long hike or a bike ride. This is a conservation project in the city so it is a great place to see some of the projects at work. Great for bird watchers. In addition there is a lighthouse by the end of the location. Best of all it is free. Although, parking spaces maybe an issue but you can get to the entrance by bus." -- Jason

Tip 54: See the Tall Ships (above) as they Visit Canada for Rendez-Vous 2017 this Summer

"Like milestone birthdays, the Tall Ships [which will make 35 stopovers across Canada this summer] are not an every-year occurrence. The Halifax waterfront will feature a 155 m-long floating boardwalk right in the harbour that will make up an amazing waterfront promenade from which to view tall sailing ships from around the world. The atmosphere is always super and friendly. Bonus tip: For those with a modest budget and coming from the airport, take the efficient Metro X bus service and stay at a hostel downtown." -- Member Townsend 

Tip 55: Step Back in Time at Kings Landing Historical Settlement

"The entire historical experience at Kings Landing is genuine. In addition to updated and repaired buildings, the original settlement buildings are exactly as the original settlers built and lived in. Local people both volunteer and are in the employ at Kings Landing, all dressing in original clothing styles suitable to the time period...And for the traveller who wants accommodation, a mere 15-minute drive will take you to hotels, motels and even better, to Mactaquac Provincial Park where you can pitch your tent and swim in the river!" -- Member Jane

Tip 56: 10 Free Hidden Gems of Montreal

Writer Nathalie De Grandmont shares her favourite free options in a blog post written in both English and French.

Tip 57: See the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

“It is an amazing building [by Antoine Predock] -- jaw-droppingly beautiful -- and celebrates the fight for human rights around the globe that sadly still takes place today. Plan a day, as it is located at the beautiful Forks in Winnipeg. -- Member Lyn

Tip 58: Enjoy an Acadian Feast from the East

In the latest instalment of our blog, "'We're Riding Shotgun on Chuck and Danny's Road Trip,'" the two chefs (who are joined by chef Pierre Richard, centre) recommend trying the seafood delights of Fundy National Park in New Brunswick.

Tip 59: The Saskatoon Western Development Museum

This museum of Saskatchewan history, which also has outposts in Moose Jaw, North Battleford and Yorkton, has "an amazing variety of displays (both static and interactive) that are suitable and engaging for all ages. It's a great place for a family to spend a few hours. They also have tasty food in their cafe and unique items in their gift shop. --  Member Connie
