TravelPulse/ Vancouver: An Authentic First Nations Experience in Vancouver, Canada
Few destinations offer as much of an immersive experience into the rich heritage of First Nations culture as does Vancouver, Canada.

TravelPulse/ Quebec: Eat Like a Rock Star During Festival d’ete de Quebec
With over 325,00 attendees, it’s one of the biggest music festivals in North America and yet the Festival d’ete de Québec still flies under the radar for most Americans. In fact, only 10% of festival attendees are from the US. Here are a few reasons why that’s crazy. For starters, FEQ is older than Woodstock. It all began in 1968 by a pharmacist who pulled together a few businessmen and artists with the intent to highlight local artists.

Countless superlatives could describe my experience journeying across Canada onboard VIA Rail’s The Canadian.

The Daily Meal/ Quebec: What to Know Before Spending the Night in Quebec’s Famed Hôtel de Glace
The Hôtel de Glace is the only ice hotel in North America made completely from ice and snow — 500 tons of ice and 30 thousand tons of snow, to be exact. In addition to 44 rooms and themed suites, the temporary structure includes an ice chapel where people can marry, a large ice slide suitable for all ages, a Nordic area with steaming hot tubs and a sauna under the stars, and the absolute coolest ice bar you’ll ever see.
