As New Brunswick’s biggest city, it stands to reason that there are plenty of things to do in Moncton. If you’ve visited the city before, you’ve probably enjoyed the usual spots like the waterpark, the zoo, or some of the great places to eat and drink.
“When was the last time you had a sister-bonding weekend?” asked my boyfriend. Though we are close, I realised, “We’ve never had one.” Our first weekend away had to meet certain criteria: lots of fun activities, in a place we’ve never visited – and not too far. Enter Brockville.
If you’re too old to trick or treat but you still love a good scare, there are more than enough haunted destinations in Canada to give you goose bumps, wherever your travels take you.

Oktoberfest in Kitchener-Waterloo is a big deal – 700,000 people partake in the festivities, which run the gamut from the obvious (beer, polka and lots and lots of lederhosen) to the surprising and exciting (barrel races, archery, log sawing and human foosball tournaments).
I hate to break it to you, but summer will inevitably be coming to a screeching halt any day now. Soon, Canadians will solemnly trade in their iced coffees for a regular hot cup of java and start draping themselves in oversized scarves. And while I apologize in advance for the overused Game of Thrones reference (RIP Hodor), we Montrealers can relate all too well to that sinking feeling that winter, is in fact, coming.
In my experience, the best way to get to know a city is through its culinary scene. When I moved to Edmonton from Vancouver nine years ago, I set out to discover Alberta’s capital bite by bite. What I discovered was a city vibrant with culture and bursting with great food.
