"Terry Fox was a great Canadian hero, and this is a special place to reflect on his outstanding achievement and memorialize how far the research of The Terry Fox Foundation and the Terry Fox Run have come." -- Member Marlene

Tip 92: Tour Elk Island National Park, Alberta

"It's home to large herds of both plains and woodlands bison, elk herds, great lakes for paddling and wonderful camping and picnic grounds." -- Member Barbara

Tip 93: Go to the Caribana Parade in Toronto

"It's fun, colourful and a memorable experience. There's music, costumes, food and people of all ages having fun and celebrating the Canadian West Indian culture." -- Member Heather

Tip 94: Bike and Swim in Cavendish, PEI

"Rent bikes in North Rustico and ride along the path to Cavendish, Prince Edward Island. When riding you are along the ocean. You can stop halfway for a swim. When you get to Cavendish, stop for lunch and COWS ice cream. It was our favorite part of our trip. -- Member Tanya

Tip 95: Hike Beamer Memorial Conservation Area in Grimsby, Ont.

"It has beautiful hiking trails through an old Carolinian forest. Viewing platforms allow for stunning views of Lake Ontario. On a clear day you can see both Toronto and Niagara Falls in the distance. Beamer Falls itself is magnificent, especially during the spring run off. In spring, hawks and other raptors use the warm updrafts as they migrate north. An elevated raptor viewing platform is provided for those with cameras and/or binoculars to get a closer view of the spectacular birds of prey passing overhead. And the best part of all this - it's free!" -- Member Alistair

Tip 96: Travel by Rail to Agawa Canyon, Ont.    


"In Canada we are blessed with natural phenomena that can compare with the best anywhere," writes member Armand. His example is Tip 96: Take the train from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. to the Agawa Canyon and glide past "pristine lakes and rivers, undulating mountains, huge granite rock formations and dense mixed forests of the Canadian Shield." -- Member Armand

"The Sable Island National Park Reserve  (300 km southeast of Halifax) is home to more than 400 wild horses and the world’s biggest breeding colony of grey seals. You need to register with Parks Canada before you visit. Sable Island is nicknamed the "Graveyard of the Atlantic," as more than 350 ships have run aground on its sandbars. -- Member Liza

Tip 99: Taste the Bread and Honey Festival in Streetsville, Ont.

"The Bread and Honey Festival in Streetsville, Mississauga, is the perfect size, with enough rides, games and activities to keep teenagers or families entertained, but never overwhelmed. Now in its 45th year, it's held the first weekend of June with a parade on Saturday and pancake breakfast on Sunday. Two elements really set this fair apart: the idyllic setting on the banks of the Credit River, and the free slices of bread and honey handed out to hungry guests."  -- Member Susan
