The Kootenay Valley, in the southern interior of British Columbia near the Alberta border, is a year-round destination for adventure travellers looking for adrenaline shots, and the City of Nelson serves as a home base for many on their way to the nearby slopes, trails, and rapids. In between snow (or sun) days, though, there … Continue Reading →

With its beaches, food and drink, arts scene, and quaint country vibe, Prince Edward County is a popular summer destination in Ontario, and one that eagerly welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each season. But The County doesn’t go into hibernation come November. As Eat Drink Travel discovered on a recent winter getaway, the off-season may very well be the precise time to get an authentic sense of what this region has to offer. Continue Reading →
The Bay of Fundy drive draws explorers looking to bike, boat, and bus their way through this gorgeous Maritime province. If you’re going to adventure , you need room to move. And sometimes, touring New Brunswick involves wearing a kilt and eating fresh lobster. Continue Reading →
With access to the Appalachians, a series of major river systems, and coasts to the east and the south, New Brunswick is made for road tripping. The province is only around 28,000 square miles (73,000 square kilometers) so it’s easy to get from one place to the other—even with frequent stops.
On my recent trip on the Fundy Coastal Drive, I found myself signaling right to sample chocolates, lobster, smoked salmon, poutine, blueberry wine, and more. The route, which takes you from Moncton near the east to St. Stephen on the southwestern tip (and close enough to the border with Maine to ping their cell towers), is loaded with things to eat. Here’s a (non-exhaustive) guide to grazing. Continue Reading →
When I’m travelling, grocery shopping is one of my very favourite things to do. I love reading labels in another language, hunting out regional products, and experimenting in the kitchen later. Vienna has several daily markets where shoppers can find fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms, and small-batch products made on nearby living room tables. Continue Reading →
Last night, dozens of First Nation and Métis performers from across the country officially opened the Aboriginal Pavilion for the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. With multiple stages, food vendors, and a marketplace, the Pavilion—located at the Fort York National Historic Site at the foot of Strachan just north of Lakeshore Boulevard—promises to be a key family-friendly site during the event.

Ziplining, food trucks, and spas, oh my! Taking a second look at what’s new to do in Old Montreal. Continue Reading →
Gananoque is one of those small Ontario towns that changes with the seasons. But there’s tons of fun to be had year-round.
As a first-time visitor to the 1000 Islands, I arrived with questions. You might be similarly curious, so let’s get the basics out of the way. Continue Reading →
Sixteen years ago Montréal introduced a festival that would make people love winter again. Today, it’s a 10-day city-wide extravaganza attracting visitors from around the world. The sheer number of culinary events, art exhibitions, and live performances can be boggling (pro tip: create a personalized itinerary on the official website), and this is not even taking into account all there is to see in the gorgeous and historic city of Montréal. Continue Reading →
It seems like no matter when you travel to Montréal, there’s some sort of foodie festival in full swing, and one of the city’s finest — MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE — is just a few weeks off.
In case you haven’t heard, MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE IS one of the largest winter festivals in the world, attracting over 1 million visitors. This event may be named for its lights (and, indeed, has been selected by UNESCO as of its International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies), but it would be a mistake to forget the gastronomy.

Moscow’s onion spires — on colourful St. Basil’s Cathedral, on the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, and on a multitude of lesser-known buildings—are perhaps the most iconic examples of the city’s architecture, but there are equally-impressive displays beneath the streets.
For just the cost of a subway ticket, you can access nearly 200 stations on 12 lines comprising more than 325 kilometres of track—and get a history lesson. Here, listed chronologically by date opened, are five of Moscow’s greatest Metro stations. Continue Reading →
In 2010, UNESCO added traditional Mexican cuisine to the Intangible Cultural Heritage list, recognizing the local ingredients, farming practices, and regional dishes as an integral part of the national identity. Sabores Mexico owner Rodrigo Lopez Aldana—himself born and raised in Mexico City—has built a tour business that places Mexican food right where it belongs: at the center of your sightseeing experience.
Mexico City’s el Centro is the location of many iconic sights including the National Palace, the Palacio de Bellas Artes, and the world’s second-largest public plaza, Zócalo (only Moscow’s Red Square is bigger). A site of conflict between the Aztec Empire and Spanish colonizers, el Centro has hundreds of years of history behind it and is the perfect place for a walking food tour. Continue Reading →
