From the dry grasslands of Alberta to the tundra of Northern Quebec, Canada boasts a very wide range of outdoor and nature experiences in our beautiful country. We really have it all.

Some of the most beautiful natural site and attractions are located in these National Parks, I recently wrote a list of the "must-see" National Park in every province. 

If that list and photos enticed you, then you will be happy to know that Parks Canada is offering an awesome deal to nature-goers around the country.

They are offering a "Discovery Pass" which is valid for a year and grants you access to all the 80 "park Canada places" around the country.

Each park has an entry fee, so if you're planning on visiting frequently over the course of a year this pass offers HUGE savings and can pay for itself in a little as 7-days. 

So how much is this magical pass? Very reasonable actually. The fee for a family or group (up to 7 in a vehicle) is only $136.40.  And for one adult 18+ the fee is $67.70.

Another great piece of news is that as of January 2018 admission to Canada's national parks is free for youths, so anyone 17 and under!

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

Announcing Montreal's First Ever Pothole Beauty Pageant

Which is the city's most beautiful pothole?

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
