A Guide to Routes, Accommodations and Tours

Gas up your sled and ride along Muskoka’s renowned snowmobile trails this winter. With some of Ontario’s most unbelievable scenery and over 1,000 kms of groomed snowmobile trails that link the northern and southern parts of the province, you won’t regret the decision to hop on!

Trail Tips & Trail Loops

When planning your trip, consider a midweek excursion if you can. Trails are quieter, conditions are better and rates for overnight snowmobiling packages are cheaper. For a complete look at the trails in Muskoka, visit the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide.

The 15 Best Books I Read in 2022

Curved shelves lined with books in a bookshop
Posted: 12/20/2022 | December 20th, 2022

For the last five years, I’ve concluded the year with a list of my favorite reads. As a writer, reading comes with the territory. Writers just tend to read a lot. Then again, I’ve always been into reading ever since I was a little kid. I devour books. In a good year, I’ll read close to 80.

This year was not one of those years. I only read about 50 books.

As I compiled this list, I couldn’t help but notice that I gravitated a lot more to history, literature, and self-improvement than I had in the past. Though this is a travel website and I like to read a lot of travel books, I’ve found that so many fall into the same narrative arc that I just needed a break from another book on someone quitting their job to travel.

Instead, I’ve

From delicious dining options to thrilling water slides, there’s something for everyone at The Cove Atlantis. Let’s dive into why this resort is so popular with parents and their families.


The Cove at Atlantis Review


The property itself is visually stunning. As soon as we arrive I was impressed by the scope of the open-air lobby, oversized in every way. What was truly incredible to me was that I booked it with Marriott points. It cost me 60,000 points for one night here, plus $67.95 which was the resort fee and tax.

Before I visited the Golden Triangle, I had little clue what to expect. I

The Best Neighborhoods for Your Visit

The view overlooking the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland as it dives the city on a sunny day
Posted: 12/15/22 | December 15th, 2022

Dublin is a city with soul. While the capital of the Republic of Ireland might not have the aesthetics of Prague or Amsterdam, and while it might not have the in-vogue vibe of Paris or the hustle and bustle of London, it has something that many other European cities lack: soul, ambience, and heart.

There are certainly many historical landmarks and attractions to visit in Dublin: Trinity College, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Grafton Street, and the Guinness Brewery, among others. But the real attraction is its warm and welcoming people.

And where to find those friendly Irish folk? In a pub, of course.

Dublin’s true heart and soul lies in its many atmospheric pubs. I’m not advocating you spend your days and nights getting sloshed, but pubs there are the equivalent of the neighborhood osteria or trattoria in Rome or the sidewalk

En Route to Muskoka in the Fall: The Great Outdoors

Muskoka’s trail network covers roughly 4000 sq kilometres of rugged terrain. Vast forests of spruce, pine, poplar, tamarack, balsam and birch are easily accessible by some of Ontario’s best hiking trail systems. Many trails lead to panoramic lookout points where sightseers and photographers can enjoy stunning scenic vistas.

Muskoka is also a paradise for wildlife lovers. Birdwatchers will be thrilled with approximately 250 species to search for, more than 50 types of mammals and 25 species of amphibians call Muskoka home.

Just north of Muskoka, Algonquin Provincial Park is great for those favouring an active lifestyle, and fitness fans will enjoy its nine interpretive trails. For those who prefer a slower pace,
