1000 Islands, Ontario

While Ontario’s Muskoka cottage country is stunning, it’s not exactly easy on the pocketbook. Enjoy the province’s natural beauty at a better price in the 1000 Islands region. From skydiving to shopping, the area has an activity to suit every family’s interests and budget.

Interlake Region, Manitoba

Manitoba isn’t usually top of mind for vacationing, but the province’s Interlake Region is an ideal spot for a gorgeous outdoorsy family trip. Walk the boardwalks, explore the boreal forests, relax on the sandy beaches—and keep an eye out for Manipogo, Manitoba’s cousin to the Loch Ness!
