Great Canadian Christmas Gift? Park it here.

Okay folks, I promise not to inundate you with products or other things to buy in this travel-focused blog.  Sometimes I cringe when I open the travel section of my favourite national newspaper  on a Saturday morning (my  weekend ritual) and see the pages chockablock with finely-crafted ditties about accessories and gewgaws to "enhance my travelling experience."  Pish. However, I couldn't pass up sharing this one  holiday gift idea for the traveller on your list because it supports our beautiful national parks and promotes our country's beloved natural wonders.  It's the Parks Canada Discover Pass. Okay, that's the last holiday gift idea coming from me...I hope.

Not a bad deal at all. That means you could be spending your next family holiday in... Cape Breton  Highlands National Park [caption id="attachment_2302" align="aligncenter" width="393" caption="Cape Breton Highlands National Park (courtesy Parks Canada)"] Cape Breton Highlands National Park (courtesy Parks Canada)[/caption] Or even.... Sirmilik National Park of Canada [caption id="attachment_2303" align="aligncenter" width="393" caption="Sirmilik National Park of Canada: experience the Northeastern Arctic Lowlands (courtesy Parks Canada)"] Sirmilik National Park of Canada: Northeastern Arctic Lowlands (courtesy Parks Canada)[/caption] If you have any questions about terms of use and the other National Parks included in the pass, visit the Parks Canada web site.
