Celebrate 70 Years of RVing... Canada

Canada

There’s nothing quite like a road trip through Canada. Where else can you explore regions steeped in maritime history, visit cosmopolitan cities, explore the Rocky Mountains, and get lost in frontier land seemingly untouched by man? It’s all here in Canada, from the romantic lands of Newfoundland to the lush Pacific Coast of British Columbia. We’ve chosen a few select routes for you to explore in this wondrous region, from coast to coast.

Newfoundland

The Trans-Canada Highway veers gently throughout Newfoundland beginning in the romantic seafaring town of St. John’s, on the island’s eastern coast. The city is one of North America’s oldest, where famed explorer John Cabot landed in 1497. For nearly five centuries St. John’s has thrived as a bustling seaport and the lives of its residents are closely bound to the sea. The town’s rich history can be discovered at several famed attractions. Begin your search at the easternmost point in North America at the Cape Spear National Historical Site. The site is home to a historic lighthouse, as well as one of the most scenic drives in Eastern Canada. The Anglican Church of St. John the Baptist is a remarkable edifice and homage to the city’s namesake. This centuries-old cathedral is now a national historic site. Nearby is Newfoundland’s oldest church, the diminutive St. Thomas’ Anglican Church. Built in 1836, it is a unique attraction known mainly for it’s famous black tower. If you’re lucky enough to be in St. John’s in August, don’t miss the Royal St. John’s Regatta, a major annual event started in 1825 and the oldest continuous sporting event in North America, on land or sea.

Most folks know that RVs and auto racing goes together like peanut butter and jelly, but would you believe you could find authentic road racing here in northeast Canada? It’s true. During the summer weekends, outside of Clarenville, look up the town’s namesake dragway. Here, all sorts of pumped-up racing machines and the people who love them congregate to match wits and mechanical muscle, on the former airstrip.

At the town of Gander, learn about Newfoundland’s contribution to aviation. The town’s airport played an integral role during WWII as a busy refueling stop. Today, the North Atlantic Aviation Museum celebrates the area’s aviation history with displays, exhibits, and several preserved relics of retired aircraft. In late July, don’t miss Gander’s Festival of Flight, an aviation-themed fair with rides, games, cook-offs, and a demolition derby.

The U.S. is populated with oversized roadside attractions, so why should Canada be any different? Get your first taste of Canadian roadside oddities in Deer Lake, where you can see a ten-foot tall strawberry and an enormous moose. The real highlight of this sleepy town is no doubt the unique Newfoundland Insectarium and its impressive butterfly pavilion, an ideal way to get up close to these beautiful winged critters of the six- and eight-legged variety.

Manitoba

Provided By: 

Tours of Manitoba’s oil fields, air museums, pioneer villages, spacious parks, government mint, and scenic waterways provide non-stop options for action-minded tourists. And there’s another kind of action to be found at the province’s casinos and race track.

First stop is Virden, on Trans-Canada Hwy 1. Naturally, you’re going to want to take an oil field tour and step back to a Victorian lifestyle at the circa 1988 Pioneer Home Museum in town, right?

Now that we’ve scratched that itch, travel east on Trans-Canada Hwy 1 towards Winnipeg. However, don’t “leadfoot” your way through the town of Brandon. Manitoba’s “Wheat City” features the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum where loads of WWII-era Royal Canadian Air Force planes and memorabilia are on display. At Brandon’s Daly House Museum, you can investigate the details of a late 1880s family home and grocery store. Hearing the proverbial “call of the wild?” Then it’s time to rent a kayak or bike or take a narrated boat ride on the Assiniboine River at the Stream ‘N Wood Adventure Centre. Otherwise, Portage La Prairie’s Fort La Reine Museum and Pioneer Village showcases a 1700s-style replica fort and a circa 1880s village with trapper’s cabin, trading post, fire hall, country school, church, and doctor’s office.

Winnipeg time. Check out the Casinos of Winnipeg to experience zesty live entertainment, bountiful buffets, a walk-through aquarium, Millennium Express historic ride, tumbling waterfall, and first-class gaming at two locations – Club Regent and McPhillips Street Station.

Or focus your wagers on the four-legged variety at Assiniboia Downs with seasonal thoroughbred horse racing and year-round simulcast wagering. The fun and learning opportunities never cease at Assiniboine Park, with its exceptional zoo, conservatory, miniature railroad, and assorted gardens, restaurant, museum, and theatre.

Participate in a guided tour and visit the museum and store at the Royal Canadian Mint, where all those shiny ...

New Brunswick�s North Coast and Acadian Village

Provided By: 

One of the fun things on this extended trip to Canada's Atlantic Provinces was trying to deal with the concept of my fuel consumption rate. Figuring out mileage while driving through Canada goes something like this: "Let's see, it took 45 liters to go 200 kilometers. How many liters are there in a gallon? And is that a U.S. gallon or an Imperial gallon? How many miles are there in a kilometer? Or is it how many kilometers are there in a mile? And will the answer be mileage? Or kilometrage?" Most people finally conclude with: "I think I'll just wait until I get back into the States and figure out my mileage then."

And that's not even talking about converting Canadian dollars (expenses) to U.S. dollars (capital). Truly I was not in Kansas.

I'd never seen houses and yards that were better cared for than in New Brunswick. The term neat and tidy barely begins to describe how neat and tidy they were. With plentiful rain and the long summer hours of sunshine, those huge grassy lawns needed frequent cutting. Many of the front yards were so big that owners didn't walk behind their power mowers. They rode tractor/mowers. And their lawns were lush green perfection.

Additionally, New Brunswickians love lawn ornaments. Brightly painted ornaments. Fortunately, plastic pink flamingos haven't migrated that far north. Please understand, I'm not saying people's yards had three or four lawn ornaments; it was more like thirty or forty. They seemed to like the idea, because many families had them.

A few miles west of the town of Caraquet I came to a sign saying "VILLAGE HISTORIQUE ACADIEN." I parked my truck and travel trailer, walked to the ticket booth and entered the village. What an enchanting surprise!

This kind of historic park is based on the realization that most pioneer log buildings will eventually be torn down and replaced with more modern and functional ones—all in the name of "progress." But how can we save them and preserve those parts of our early history? In many countries and regions, selections of these buildings have been moved from their original locations to pioneer–type settings. Acadian Village is like that.

About 250 years ago, when the English were trying to dominate what are now the Maritime Provinces of Canada, they removed all French–speaking Nova Scotians who wouldn't swear allegiance to the English king. Some were sent to the Mississippi River Delta and became the Cajuns. Others moved north and west to regions that later became New Brunswick. They became the French–speaking Acadians.

The 40+ buildings that make up the village are about 200 years old, and they represent the first houses, barns, mills and other work buildings that the displaced Acadians constructed (later, as they became more settled in, the people made nicer, more solid structures). The village buildings represent the more primitive aspects of the Acadians' difficult beginnings here.

Found in the village are farmhouses, a general store, tavern, woodworking shop,...
