Every parent knows that travelling with kids has its ups and downs, but if the kids are happy, everyone’s happy.

Helen Earley has included a range of activities that will appeal to all ages. She highlights adventures — especially less well-known ones — for every season. There are tips on the best time of day or year to visit, how to save money and the all-important information on where the bathrooms and snack bars are located.

"I love this book and Helen Earley, the author, is an absolute legend in her own right...if you have a family and you are eager to go out and adventure throughout this beautiful province of ours, you should have this as a compendium piece because it is just really well done. Not only does it give you great information, its got great photography throughout it and what I absolutely love about it is it covers 4 seasons of adventure."
