Outdoor Adventure Getaway to Quebec City…

Quebec is friendly, quaint, and an outdoor traveler’s bucket list destination.

Bring your walking or hiking shoes, as the best way to explore Quebec City is by foot.

With various hills and two natural levels due to its location on the cliffs of the St. Lawrence, there are over thirty staircases. The largest staircase in Quebec City and my personal favorite is Cap Blanc with nearly 400 stairs, which is a great workout for locals and athletic visitors alike; however, most are less strenuous and with fewer stairs.

Regardless a trip to Quebec is good for your legs with no good excuse for skipping dessert or that extra glass of wine…

The Ultimate City Guide on Whistler British Columbia…

My name is Chelsey and I have lived in Whistler, British Columbia for the past four years.

Whistler can best be described in these five words:

  • adventurous;
  • spectacular;
  • natural;
  • enchanting; and
  • iconic.

Women should consider visiting Whistler because it’s the ultimate girls getaway, family vacation or romantic couples retreat. The beauty of mother nature, coupled with the active social vibe of the resort, makes Whistler an ideal mountain escape.

Plus, there’s so much to see and do besides hitting the slopes!

Whether you’re an intrepid mountaineer or a non-skier who loves to get a dose of fresh mountain air, Whistler is arguably the best all-season mountain resort in North America (okay, I may be a little biased).

She loves a good challenge.

Matty McNair is an American explorer who relocated to the Canadian Arctic for her love of the wilderness and dog sledding.
