Here’s to a new year with new destinations to discover! As you’re planning your 2018 travels, what cities and sights are on your bucket list? We’ve got everything from seaside escapes to urban adventures to stargazing on our list.
1. Embark on an epic road trip
Towering mountains, stunning landscapes, and abundant wildlife, the Alaska Highway through the Yukon is one stunning drive. There are so many sights to see along the way. On our list are a stop at the Sign Post Forest at Watson Lake, time to explore Whitehorse, see the Continental Divide, and visit Kluane National Park and Reserve.
2. Relax on a seaside escape
Just south of Tofino, Ucluelet, BC, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, is a scenic seaside town. Located in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, it’s a popular spot for surfing, fishing, whale and bear watching, or even just relaxing on the sandy beaches.
3. Take a history lesson
Quebec City, QC, is absolutely steeped in history. Set up camp at one of the many campgrounds near the city and discover over 400 years of history as you stroll the cobblestone streets of Old Québec, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
4. Go south
When we just can’t wait for summer in Canada, a trip down south is in order! When traveling in the US, the RV Care alliance with the Priority RV Network means you’ll receive priority emergency care at over 110 dealerships.
5. Visit more national parks
The year of free National Park admission may be over, but we’re still excited to explore our country’s beautiful parks. High on our list is Newfoundland and Labrador’s Gros Morne National Park. Stay at one of five campgrounds, and explore the spectacular fjords, mountains and beaches.
Far away from the bright city lights, a dark-sky preserve is just the place for uninterrupted stargazing. Parks Canada has ten designated sites as Dark-Sky Preserves that you could add to your RV bucket list, with Grasslands National Park being the darkest Dark-Sky Preserve in Canada, and Wood Buffalo National Park being the largest Dark-Sky Preserve in the world.
