My visits to Saskatoon seem to be growing and with every passing opportunity to visit, I drive around to see what the city has to offer and take in the ongoing gentrification. If you’ve never been to Saskatoon, it’s a midwest Canadian city with a rich Aboriginal history and early 20th-century architecture that affords a little nostalgia of the "old west". And because of the Saskatchewan River, Saskatoon has its own charm with nine river-crossings which earned the city the nic
On a recent Press Trip to travel around the Quebec City region and along the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River, I had the opportunity to experience the all-new Lincoln Aviator— a 7-seater, 400hp SUV that easily competes with Volvo’s XC90, Infiniti's QX60, and Land Rover’s Discovery. What you need to know is that starting from $69k, the Aviator really does afford an interior sanctuary that isn't easily replicable. Adorned with premium leather, chrome accents, state-to-th
I've always been a fan of the city of Calgary for a multitude of reasons. As a burgeoning metropolis supporting a diverse population with the perfect proximity to the beautiful mountains of Banff and Lake Louise, Calgary is beginning to encapsulate the big city feels that Toronto and Vancouver have know for some time, and has become more and more entertaining and engaging in its own wake.

If you’ve never been to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Atlantic Canada’s largest city— GO! The seaport city was founded in 1749 and has so much to explore on foot with hip neighborhoods like the up-and-coming North End and the eclectic Spring Garden Road, where the award-winning Halifax Public Library and the peaceful Public Gardens share space. Other attractions include the Seaport Farmers’ Market, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and the Canadian Immigration Museum at Pier 21.
We all know the city of Montreal has its own urban charm and trendy flair. As a ville that separates itself from the rest of the mega-cities across Canada, it remains unique in urban sprawl and architecture, with a stylistic touch of French heritage. Coming from someone who has both lived there and explores this destination as a business tourist, it's next to impossible to go wrong when it comes to a hotel or sweet spot to hang your hat for a few days. This time around I opte
If you've ever been to Ottawa, ON, you might feel like it's a bit of a sleepy town with a few lively distractions. But it's mostly a town full of tasteful Art, Heritage Architecture, and Political Theater-- currently at its best. The thing I've always appreciated about Ottawa is its luxury of art galleries and historical museums like the Canadian Museum of History, the Canadian War Museum, the National Gallery of Canada, the National Arts Centre and many more. Each venue tell
