It’s summer and that means it’s time to celebrate and spend every second we can outside enjoying the sunshine. Here are a few of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of Canada in the summer.
Go to the beach. There is no limit of gorgeous beaches open to the public all across this vast country. No matter which province you’re in, you’ll find beaches as epic and extraordinary as you would find anywhere else in the world. The only difference? It’s actually warm enough to swim in them during these few precious months.
Explore Canada’s incredible national parks. Explore Parks Canada to find the ones closest to you, or use it as an excuse to travel to a part of the country you’ve never seen before. National parks like Banff and Pacific Rim are world famous for a reason. If you haven’t seen them yet, what are you waiting for?
Take a road trip. While some see road trips as a very American way to travel, Canada is vast and beautiful and most of us rarely see all of it. Make this summer the one where you finally drive across the country and see all it has to offer, from the Rockies through the Prairies and into the land of Maple trees.
Play an outdoor sport. In the spirit of getting while the getting is good, unless you practice winter sports and enjoy the cold, there isn’t a huge timeframe to enjoy outdoor sports in Canada. For the next few months, you can join a rec soccer, basketball or softball league and enjoy the fresh air while staying fit.
Throw a pool party. If you’re lucky enough to have one, or have access to one, throwing a pool party will make you everyone’s favourite person. Pool season is here, and it’s brief, so everyone is desperate to get into their swimsuit and enjoy some cocktails with their friends. Last minute pool parties are even better—just text all your closest friends and tell them to bring a suit and come over.
