JourneyWoman: Canada Rocks
Canada rocks right across the country! Whether you’re travelling on your own, with friends or with family, there are countless wonderful experiences just waiting to be enjoyed. Lineups include everything from a blockbuster art exhibit to floral discovery walks to fabulous intergenerational fun in the sun with young ones in your family.
In Winnipeg, you won’t need a partner to appreciate the blockbuster exhibit, 100 Masters: Only in Canada, where solo-friendly audio tours are included in the admission price. Tune in and enjoy works by Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh and Warhol hanging alongside Canadian masters Emily Carr and Mary Pratt. Then finish your alone time at Fort Garry Hotel’s Hamam at Ten Spa, Canada’s only co-ed Turkish bath. A double treat!
Summer means flowers and trees in full bloom and how better to enjoy them than on a solo meditative walk through Victoria’s Butchart Gardens. And when the sun goes down, visitors will appreciate that there is no extra charge for lovely evening concerts on the lawn or for firework displays each and every summer Saturday.
Life-long learners will truly love a visit to EdVentures, a craft and culture summer school taking place in Fredericton. With everything from Fashion Designs for Dolls to participation in an authentic quilting bee, solo travellers will soon forget they are alone.
What’s cookin’ during the summer in Prince Edward Island? Perfect opportunities for grandma and grandkiddies to do some gold-star bonding. There’s cooking classes at Zagat’s Culinary Boot Camp in Charlottetown, plenty of room to roam the red sandy beaches and a performance of Anne of Green Gables, The Musical that should not be missed. Top your treats off with a sundae from Cows, the renowned ice cream company headquartered in that province, and you’ll be reminiscing about it for years to come.
