If you’re wondering what Canadians are doing to celebrate Family Day (Feb. 20), CheapOair.ca has some answers.
While it may not be an official national holiday, Family Day – also known as Heritage Day – is a holiday marked to celebrate this country’s shared history and cultural heritage.
And, says CheapOair.ca, there are some unique ways for Canadians to enjoy the day.
Daniel Hayter, Senior Product Manager for CheapOair.ca, said: “We see the growth of travel interest and bookings around holidays and as the first unofficial holiday for a majority of Canadians, this is expected to be a busy travel weekend.”
In line with the historic and cultural meaning, there is no better way to experience Family Day then by travelling to different destinations and learning something new.
Here are a few unique options for Canadians to consider:
‘Backyard’ Staycation — We are all familiar with the term staycation; however the idea of a ‘Backyard’ Staycation is meant to promote a local overnight trip within our vast Canadian backyard.
From the Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, home to some of the most extensive dinosaur fossil fields in the world, to the Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia, recognized as North America’s largest historical reconstruction, there is no shortage of cross-country educational adventures that can be fun for the whole family.
