Here is How to Taste Your Way Through Quebec's Delicious Culinary Culture

Jul 29, 2015  |   Contributor: Diane Sukiennik & Michael Reiss

The uniqueness of Canada’s Québec Province—with its old world charm and new world creativity—is only topped by its renowned cuisine. While many people may have visited quaint Québec City, the culinary culture truly begins in the bucolic “Eastern Townships,” where all the local ingredients are cultivated. So, as any gourmand worth his/her salt would say, “Let’s go to the source.”  A three-night tour of the villages and towns—each with their own specialties—will introduce you to the pleasures of the palette.

This Canadian Resort Can Only be Reached by Air or Sea & Was Once a Logging Camp

Aug 11, 2015  |   Contributor: Julie Hatfield

After a helicopter ride north from Vancouver, about 45 minutes of over the Discovery Islands, a dozen of us set down at the Sonora Resort on a recent trip. This is the only way it can be reached, via air or boat. No roads mar the pristine beauty of the deep red cedar, fir, pine and spruce forests here. How ironic, to be spoiled rotten in one of the most unspoiled places on earth.

May 22, 2015  |   Contributor: Djani Schafer

In the coolest real estate news of the week, Regina George’s $14.8 million home has hit the market courtesy of Sotheby's International Realty. Located in Toronto, the 20,000-square-foot property was infamously home to the Mean Girls Queen Bee—you know, the girl John Stamos thought was pretty. You may remember spotting the mansion when Regina (played by Rachel McAdams) invited new girl Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) over after school—it's also when we met Amy Poehler as the eternal "cool mom."

InterContinental Toronto Yorkville Shines in One of the City's Swankiest Neighborhoods

Jan 14, 2015  |   Contributor: Maria Yates

Before 2015 rolled in, I took my yearly pilgrimage to Yorkville, which is, without a doubt, one of Toronto's swankiest areas. It's also my personal favorite city in the vicinity. Any time of the year Yorkville is trendy and glamorous, and maintains a small-village feel within a large metropolis. But during the month of December, with the extra twinkling of festive lights, it is especially attractive and romantic.

Discovering Québec's Food Scene in Montreal, Lanaudiere and Mauricie

Jan 9, 2015  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial

Montrealers have three obsessions, I’m told. The first is the Canadian’s hockey team, the second is food and cycling takes third place. Though I’m an avid sports fan and bicycle rider (albeit back in the day), my trip to Québec involved numéro deux: its food. My mission was twofold: to forge an edible journey beyond Montreal’s traditionally tried-and-true poutine (fries and cheese curds topped with gravy), and to take a physical journey past the metropolis to what locals call authentic Québec.

Go Heli-Fishing in the Middle of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia

Sep 8, 2014  |   Contributor: Julie Hatfield  |  5 Comments

Have you ever been helicopter fishing? No, it doesn’t mean fishing for helicopters. It means having your own private helicopter with a pilot who is as good a fisherman and mountain guide as he is at piloting. Swooping up over 50,000 square feet of pristine rainforest, when his trained eye spots a river filled with jumping salmon, he will head straight down to land on a tiny piece of terrain at a riverbed noisy with the sound of the sparkling, spawning fish. Once there, you can throw in your line and pull them in to your heart’s content.

The Warmer Side of Whistler Has More Than Just Wintertime Activities

Aug 29, 2014  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial  |  1 Comment

It was my final day in Canada and I relaxed upon rattan palms at the entrance of Fairmont Chateau Whistler, which at 25 years of age is the village matriarch. As I awaited my transportation, I observed my surroundings. Encircled by the green of mountains and a blue sky above, the village to the left and spruce and cedars everywhere, it was a Christmas-perfect setting, one that it is best known for in the winter. But having gone in the summer, I discovered that Whistler is much more than just a winter destination.
