trip across Canada

Hi Soon to start off on our trip across Canada from the east to the west coast. Any suggestions on things/places that we should see and do.

I can suggest some places to go in the lower mainland in BC(Vancouver area) if you want. Not sure what you are into, so what sort of "things" do you like?
BTW, any campsites booked? BC's provincial parks with camping require a reservation.. These can be made 3 months before your check-in date.

Can help with Manitoba, but similar to above, you might need to reserve.

Are you taking Trans-Canada Hwy?

Are you in NB? What type of Jayco are you travelling with? What sort of time frame will you have? Couple or family with kids?

After leaving Kenora you might consider taking the Yellowhead west of Winnipeg and spending a night or two in Riding Mountain National Park. Wasagaming is nice if you like camping with amenities and being at a resort townsite, but with the Sport I would recommend that you venture more into the Park and camp next to the bison herd at Lake Audey; just be smart about bears.

I can suggest Wells Gray and Mt Robson in BC if you like nature and hiking.
Anywhere in the Okanagan Valley if you want to wine tour...
Its beautiful in the BC Interior.
Happy Trails

We spent 51 days on the road west last summer so my head spins trying to keep this short. A few that stand out: Drumheller, dinosaur fossils and the Royal Tyrrell Museum, Calgary, all the oil money at work, the Stampede, Banff and the National Park, Vancouver Island, Whistler, the peak to peak gondola, Jasper and the National Park. If you are in the Ottawa area in the fall, the Carp Fair,"Best Little Fair In Canada", 100 percent agricultural, big heavy horse entry daily, the Diefenbunker Cold War Museum any time of year.
We are heading east this year, back to Newfoundland for the 3rd time. We have done all of the east coast a few times.
So much to see in our own Canada.

SusanDavid we did the east coast over 23 days last summer and this summer we are doing the west coast over 30 days. Bought our Whitehawk 28DSBH so we could travel across Canada. I have planned stops in Winnipeg, Moose Jaw, Drumheller, Banff, Salmon Arm, Whistler, Vancouver, Tofino, Osoyoo's then we are crossing the boarder and spending 11 days in the states on our way home. I have pre booked all our sites as I know from experience they book up fast. If you are coming through Thunder Bay, Ontario try Sibley or Kakabeka Provincial Parks or the KOA which is just outside the city. All great places to stay.
Safe travels.
