Solo Traveller Club Host, Tina Richardson, shares some of her favourite highlights of Eastern Canada.
by Tina Richardson
Genuine, warm, welcoming, fun-loving and funny to the core, the people of Eastern Canada are dear to my heart. I narrowly missed calling Newfoundland my home in my early years and cherish the summer days I spent there as a child. I can’t help but still consider this land home, even if I have yet to officially lay my hat.
What is so special about Eastern Canada? Here are some of my favourite highlights!
Check out Nova Scotia’s finest .. wine that is! The Annapolis Valley is one of Canada’s newest and up and coming wine regions. Whether you want to pick up a bottle or two to take home or simply sip a glass while enjoying the local seafood, it’s a must try!
Looking for a unique summer selfie opportunity? As you make your way to the beaches of Shediac, be sure to stop and see the giant lobster! The Giant Lobster sculpture is nestled in Rotary Park - It’s a beautiful park setting and sure to be a hoot for the whole family.
Prince Edward Island
Hit the beach! With over 90 spectacular beaches tucked into a mere 5,660 square kilometres of coastline, you have your pick of beaches on this island. Consider taking a bike ride. The flat, easy, paved Gulfshore Parkway parallels the beach and you’ll find bike rentals all across the island.
Newfoundland and Labrador
Vast and pristine, the landscapes of Newfoundland are absolutely spectacular. And even more spectacular than the scenery are the names of some of the places you will come across. Leading Tickles is a town of approximately 500 inhabitants and is known for its’ stunning scenery. Happy Adventure is a fishing outport of over 200 that takes great pride in in billing itself as Newfoundland’s most peaceful community. And then there’s Blow Me Down, a provincial park northwest of Corner Brook.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, I’m tickled that our Solo Traveller Club will be taking to Newfoundland and Labrador in summer 2017. In traditional Solo Traveller fashion, this is an adventure not to be missed!
