Explore Canada’s Hidden Gems with IHG
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is launching a fun contest to find the top 150 hidden travel gems in our country. IHG sponsored this hotel stay and my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are my own.
Happy 150th birthday Canada!
A great way to celebrate Canada’s birthday is to get out and discover just how much this country has to offer! There are hidden gems to be found around every corner. Schedule some family fun this year, and see how many hidden gems you can discover!
Our family loves to discover places off the beaten path, and then write about them so you, too can explore them!
One of our favourite hidden gems in the HRM can be found in Bedford in a place we call the Heart Shaped Pond.
In this park, also known as the Hemlock Ravine, dating back to 1780, there are 200 hectares to explore. Trails weave and wend through the park, and all are great for strollers and small children. You can choose the length of your walk by combining the various trails.
Make sure you bring a copy of the map with you!
Approximately 15 minutes from Halifax, this is the perfect hidden gem to explore while staying in Halifax!
Our family loves to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Halifax – Bedford, so we can have more time to explore the area.
The kids love the water slide, and we love the free breakfast, and always the great service!
The pillows are the best, allowing you to choose one that suits your comfort.
This time, we got two adjoining rooms as the kids have been obsessed with trying them out. This time, my parents came with us, so the kids could wander back and forth between the rooms, and we had a place to sit and visit after the kids went to bed!
